A CHILD, A BACKPACK
During last November and this last weekend of December, many people have moved a lot to get material with which to continue working on the project : “A child, a backpack” and start making solidarity backpacks for our children.
If you still do not know us, we invite you to do so by watching the following video:
During these two months, as we explained at the beginning of this article, there have been initiatives to collect the necessary materials and get “down to work” in the manufacture of solidarity backpacks and in the preparation of school materials. All this school supplies will go inside the backpacks for the enjoyment of the children of Valencia, Kenya and Nicaragua. A project that continues thanks to the support and trust of:
- Adventure Volunteer Initiatives
- Volunteers in general
- MAPFRE Foundation Valencia
- Association friends of culture and the rural world

- Volunteer MAPFRE Foundation, Valencia
More and more, we receive more support from entities, companies, associations and volunteers that spend part of their time to collaborate with us in this idea that was born with the intention of helping families, women and children of limited resources in these countries.
From here we want to make known, and give thanks for what we have achieved in these dates near Christmas. THANKS!
