Our Giving Partners are an incredible community of generous and purpose driven individuals— who are all about making a difference. And you are going to fit right in.
We’ve made it more easier than ever for individuals to become Giving Partners through our website and make a tangible difference in the lives of the children we will serve, together.
HOW IT WORKS
Once you’ve selected your gift, we’ll add your Repurpose Schoolbags to be gifted at one of our handover days at pre-selected schools. We batch together all the gifts received between the 1st and 20th of each month. It then takes us 2 weeks to manufacture the number of Repurpose Schoolbags gifted each month. While the bags are being made, the selected school is sent a Handover Day Pack, which guides the school in making preparations for the Handover day. The school also submits class lists of the total count of leaners matching the gifted bags is submitted to Rethaka Foundation for filling.
We then host a handover day and gift Repurpose schoolbags to the learners according to the names on the class lists submitted. Every school that is a beneficiary is subject to a vetting process that we do which includes a needs analysis to see if for example the school has large numbers of learners who walk long distances to/from school, if the children come from low-income households or child-headed households. Additionally, the willingness of the Principal and the teachers to work with us is important, as we require long-term participation to sustain our impact reporting.
In the end, we share every handover day and upload all the pictures to our Facebook Page. We also send emails to the Giving Partners who contributed to gifting a school, so that they can see exactly what happens at our handover days and also share the total number of learners they contributed towards gifting Repurpose Schoolbags. Each school’s Principal is also required to submit a thank you letter that is dated and stamped for us to send to our Giving Partners.
100% of your gift goes towards supporting children who are on a mission to lift themselves out of poverty through education.
