WriteUnite has created its own school kits to send to students who need them most.
Funded by sales of our books and through donations, our kits include a pen, pencils, colouring pencils, exercise books, a sharpener, a rubber, a ruler and a pencil case, all in a sturdy rucksack.
These make up the essential supplies that children need to study and learn, but that schools and families who are affected by poverty may find impossible to supply.
We work with well-established, reliable grassroots organisations, already working with schools and communities, to help us distribute the kits to children who will most benefit, and give copies of our books to local schools and libraries.
Thanks to the sale of our first book, and with the help of the Tegla Loroupe Peace Foundation in Kenya and Les Enfants de Frankie in Monaco, we have already distributed 500 school kits. With our second book, "I Believe I Can..." we hope to beat that record.
