Over half of the South African population is living below the poverty line, and when the new school year starts, many parents struggle to afford essentials such as stationery and school shoes for their children. A lack of stationery makes it extremely difficult for children to learn and progress at school in rural communities. As such, every year, Muslim Hands runs a Gift A School Kit campaign to help orphans and needy children in rural schools across South Africa, ensuring they are provided with the right tools to earn a quality education.
Alhamdulillah, since its very onset in 2014, the campaign has assisted thousands of children across South Africa. Our teams distribute brand new stationery kits to pupils in rural schools at the start of the school year, and these kits include items such as exercise books, pens, pencils, files, folders, and crayons to last pupils for the entire school year. This year, we are also distributing school shoes to students in need. With every school kit that you donate, we will provide the child with a brand-new pair of school shoes.
