There is no better sight than the excited smile on a child's face. There is no better feeling than knowing that you are responsible for that smile. We would like to offer this unique opportunity to touch the hearts of the sons and daughters of our homeland – to go beyond the necessities, and give that special feeling of happiness that we all were fortunate to experience in our own childhood.

Every backpack will include:

• Activity books

WHY

Armenia is a developing country that is struggling economically. There are hundreds of kindergartens throughout Armenia that lack basic school supplies for children. While these facilities provide for the children's basic needs, they cannot keep up with the ongoing needs for school supplies for all the children.  Families in need find it extremely difficult to provide their children with basic necessities such as backpacks and basic school supplies to start school.

HOW

AERF will purchase one quality backpack full of essential school supplies for $20 in Armenia. Donations are welcomed in any amount. 100% of the proceeds will be spent buying new backpacks and school supplies for children in need. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

OTHER BENEFITS

Backpacks and school supplies will be purchased in Armenia, stimulating the local economy by the infusion of capital.  In addition, each backpack will have school and dental hygiene supplies lasting from kindergarten until end of first grade.
