September Update: Back to School!

Hello Friends,

The fall is upon us – and that means back to school time! It’s an especially exciting time for us since we have had a number of uniform distributions recently.

Uniforms were distributed in Haiti through our giving partner Children of Haiti Project last week. Check out the smiles on those faces!


We also got some great photos from the Dignitas Project – these little ones in Kenya are showing off their new uniforms! 494 students at Excellence School in Kenya received new uniforms last week.


Our giving partner the Vertile Foundation shared some wonderful photos today of the kids in Haiti loving their new uniforms. They are so ready for back to school!


We also funded a few new projects in the past couple of weeks! First, we are partnering with EDEM Foundation once again to provide 140 new school uniforms for elementary school children in Haiti – just in time for back to school!

We are providing an additional 21 school uniforms to elementary school children in the Dominican Republic through our partnership with Los Niños!

And finally, Tailored for Education is again providing school uniforms for 25 girls at the Horizons School in Cambodia. Horizons is an organization that assists adolescent girls and young women from very difficult circumstances to finish basic education, followed by a highly specialized training in the hotel and tourism industry. The training, which follows the ASEAN-approved curriculum, is certified by the Cambodian Ministry of Tourism and qualifies the students to work in 4 and 5 star international hotels.


That’s all for now. Have a wonderful week!
