About School in a Bag

School in a Bag provide bright red rucksacks full of essential resources that enable poor, orphan, vulnerable and disaster affected children worldwide to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves, eat, drink, wash and above all, learn.

A typical SchoolBag contains: 12 pencils, 10 biro pens, 12 colouring pencils, a maths set, ruler, pencil case, 6 exercise books (line/square/plain), a water bottle, a LunchBox and Spork and a hygiene pack comprising toothbrush, toothpaste, flannel and soap.
Our first SchoolBags were distributed in Swaziland in 2009 with Shelterbox. Since then, over 142,000 bags have been delivered in 55 countries including refugee SchoolBags provided for displaced children and young people relocated to the UK.
