About Us: The Backpack Project is a registered Canadian non-profit organization that promotes health and education among Caribbean students by providing them with pre-packed backpacks containing stationery items and personal health items. Our aim is to equip students with the tools they need to succeed in the classroom, as well as to improve their personal health and hygiene. In so doing, we wish to make a difference in these children's lives one backpack at a time.
Our Fundraising Goal: This Christmas, our goal is to raise $5,000 (~$50 per backpack) which will allow us to distribute 100 backpacks in January 2019 as follows:
