Books Bikes and Backpacks

Dear Friends,

We hope all is well with you and yours. K.I.D.S. has a strong focus on education and we are always happy to be able to give out bikes, books, uniforms and backpacks to students. In poor rural areas having a bike is a necessity, not just to be able to go to school but for the family to use to go to the market, clinics and also take their siblings to school; as they travel far distances to get an education. A bike means the difference between going to school or not. It is great to also upgrade their old crumbling bikes with a new one.

School supplies and uniforms are needed and necessary however due to poverty and poor funding they are often not able to afford them. It is a relief to everyone when we can upgrade their supplies and give poor students a new clean uniform that will last them the year. We also believe that kids need to play and so on Sunday we were able to bring soccer balls and nets for the school and all the kids from our Smart Kids program immediately hit the field and happily started great to see these kids have some fun!!!

Thanks again for supporting these great children, youth and teachers, along with all K.I.D.S. donors we especially thank the many children around the world who saved their birthday money and fundraised to bring kids bikes and better futures.

All the very best to all of you,
Adrianne and Rick
