Kids of K School Supply Distribution

Thanks to our generous donors, Kids of K has recently completed our annual school supply distribution to our partner schools in northern Senegal. This year, we distributed supplies to 19 elementary schools with more than 3,000 students. In a region where more than two thirds of the population are living on about $3 per day and school supplies can seem out of reach, teachers report that our distributions make an important difference in the educational experience they can provide to the children. And with your continued support, we can do so much more for so many kids!
