Make School Kits and Health Kits for Nicaraguan Children

Your children most likely have everything they need—soap, toothbrush, shampoo—to groom themselves every day. And each fall you probably buy supplies—pencils, paper, crayons, ruler—your child needs for school.

As simple and inexpensive as these items are to first-world citizens, school and hygiene basics are beyond the reach of most Nicaraguan families.

Now you can help.

CT Quest’s School Kits and Health Kits give poor children the necessities they need for cleanliness and refreshment. The Kits supply the tools Nicaraguan students need to work at school.

How your children benefit from helping poor Nicaraguan kids

School Kits and Health Kits are child-to-child projects that let your son or daughter connect directly with children in Nicaragua. Rather than preaching and teaching, you can give your children the experience of sharing.
