School children with no pens, pencils or paper!


It’s hard to believe, but it’s an all too common problem in rural schools across Africa for children to have no basic materials.  How can children learn without these essentials of education?


We believe this is wrong and that tools are for education too.  So for many years TWAM has sent out Scholar Packs for children in mainly poor rural schools.  Scholar Packs aim to give each child everything they need for their early education, all put together in a colourful A4 folder.  With your help we can make this right. 

Could you make up a Scholar Pack?

Could the children at your Church or school make up scholar packs?

Could your youth club/Scout or Guide group rise to the challenge?

This is a great way to get children in our country engaged with children across Africa.

A pack contains:

1. A4 Plastic Document Wallet

2. A4 Writing Pad

3. Pack of Pencils and Biro Pens

4. Pack of Colouring Pencils, not felt tip

5. Geometry Set. i.e. ruler, protractor and square

6. Rubber

7. Pencil Sharpener

8. Small Calculator

9. Please enclose £2 to help cover shipping costs


Feel free to include a letter/photo of the donor in

with your scholar pack but please do not include

your address or contact details.
