Project Promise School Kits

A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.  As of December 2015, there were 65.3 million displaced people, according to a report from the refugee agency.  A refugee camp is a temporary settlement built to receive refugees and people in refugee-like situations.

Imagine having to choose between a meal or purchasing a notebook for school.   Project Promise School Kits are sent to places where even the few required school supplies may be more than a family can afford. Pencils and paper can help write a positive future.  Good Shepherd is reaching out to these refugees by making backpacks and supplying them.  Included in the backpacks are the following items:  4 notebooks, 1 ruler, 1 pencil sharpener, a pair of scissors, 5 pencils, 5 ink pens, a box of colors and an eraser.   These backpacks will be shipped in the fall through Lutheran World Relief.
