School Materials Project

The School Materials Project (SMP) aims to make education more accessible for students that lack basic school materials such as backpacks, notebooks, and writing utensils. Students are often not allowed to attend class without these supplies. We strive to provide these basic materials to students so that they are able to go to school every day, and so that they don’t drop out of school simply because they can’t afford a notebook. This project identifies students’ needs on a case by case basis, as some students can afford some items and not others.
