Whilst children here in the UK wait in anticipation for Christmas gifts, hundreds of students across Cambodia, Myanmar and Nepal have been excited over the past few weeks to receive a brand new UWS school bag! In Cambodia and Myanmar, these bags are the same UWS red that you might recognise, containing workbooks and stationery for use in class. In Nepal, as you can see above, the design is slightly different, but the concept is nevertheless the same: a recognisable UWS bag that gives students a sense of belonging, and provides them with the basic resources they need to participate in lessons. In fact, the bags have gone down so well that our teams in Nepal have even reported an increase in parents dropping children at school since handing out the bags!
