Donation of school bags and school supplies

There were about 237 school children from nursery, kindergarden, elementary level. A student needed between 8 to 11 notebooks . One for each subject. A more comprehensive lists is needed for those students in other grade level.
The school also needed a audio-visual materials, books for the school library and reference materials.
We managed to give each student between 2 to 4 notebooks and there are still room for more donations. The group is again planning to come back in the near future.
