Education for all
While our primary school children have easy access to the tools of learning such as pens, pencils, paper and chalk, young students in our neighbouring South Pacific nations, may not be so fortunate. Availability of these items can make an enormous positive difference to the learning outcomes for these young children.
Kits for Kids is the QCWA's project providing A4 boxes of these much-needed classroom items to school children in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and other nations in the South Pacific Area.
QCWA Branch members secure in-kind donations or fundraise to purchase school resources. The kits are boxed then delivered and stored at a Rotary International warehouse in Brisbane for shipping to South Pacific Area nations.
Members and the general public can help these school children to have access to the basic items for classroom learning and contribute to improved educational outcomes where they are desperately needed, and gratefully received.
