In 2019 the project "The First Schoolbag" will take place for the third time. This year we will select the future first graders, living in families, who are affected by unemployment and social problems, while working in cooperation with the social workers from Radviliškis and Kupiškis district municipalities.

In 2016 Vilnius International Rotaract Club initiated the project “The First Schoolbag”, because its members believe that every child should have the best possible start to education in life.

The aim of the project is to provide the first graders from the social risk families with a school bag, containing all the necessary inventory. The school inventory includes: school bag, school stationery, uniform, sportswear.

During the two years of the project, thanks to the funds collected, we provided in total 90 first graders and 1 kindergardener with all the necessary equipment.

Thank you!

~10 % of families who are raising a soon to be first grader, have not enough financial resources to provide with all stationary supplies one might need for school.

238 EUR - maximum earnings of one person, who lives in a household where poverty line is below average.

~200 EUR - the amount of money is needed  for a “starting pack” at school a first-grade pupil might need.
