This has been an incredible spring for TFE, so much to share!
First off, we held two events. The first was the “Shop Sip Support” event at Intermix Boston in early April. Shoppers were able to browse the latest fashions and have a portion of their purchase go toward providing school uniforms! And the second was the “Collaborate, Educate, Celebrate” event, where we celebrated our partnerships with Daraja Academy and Flying Kites. Check out this great video that was shown at the event!
We’ve had several projects funded this spring – including with partners the Steven Foundation, Dignitas Project and Catholic Relief Services. Through our partnership with Catholic Relief Services, we funded 3,584 uniform sets which were distributed to eight schools in Cambodia. With savings through the procurement process, an additional 790 poor and disabled children will be receiving uniforms. That is a total of 4,374 uniforms for this project alone! Check out the photos below of the latest distribution!
Lastly, we celebrated Tailored for Education’s 5th birthday this past week! Over the past five years, we’ve provided over 30,000 school uniforms to children in 10 countries. Thank you all for your incredible support – we couldn’t do it without you!
Have a wonderful week!
