Getting ready for a new school year is an exciting time for students. It is a chance to start afresh and aspire to higher learning. It is also a time to acquire ‘tools’ for learning, like new uniforms, backpacks, notebooks, and other school supplies.
The reality is that in recent years, school budgets have been in steady decline. As a result, it has become harder for schools to provide essential supplies to students. Underprivileged students are affected the most as they lack access to these ‘tools’ by other means, thereby limiting their potential.
