TANA has expanded its perennial and successful Backpack program to the Telugu States in India to help the impoverished school going children in our villages and motivate them to go to attend by providing basic school supplies. This program is intended to connect the NRI’s to their villages/schools and make them part the empowerment of their village/town educational system.
This focused activity will give every child a chance to go back to school with confidence and pride. The intention is to prepare these children for school by giving them a new backpack filled with grade-specific school supplies. A new, full backpack can make the difference between a child being excited to go to school, and refusing to go at all. It also relieves parents of an expense they cannot sometimes afford.
We urge you participate in TANA Backpack(India) program and help prepare children in need for a successful school year 2018-2019. Please use the TANA Donate link (www.tana.org/donate)to donate or send checks to TANA Treasurer. When you donate please select BACKPACK from the drop down and mention your village/town name and specific school name in comments if you want to your donation goes to that specific location.
