School in a Bag (SIAB) is an initiative run by the Piers Simon Appeal, a charity, set up in memory of Piers who sadly lost his life in the Indian Ocean Tsunami on Boxing Day in 2004.In 2009, following a project helping orphan children in Swaziland, the School in a Bag initiative was born to help address the millions of children who are deprived of an opportunity to learn.
SIAB delivers rucksacks filled with stationery, learning resources and eating utensils to poor, orphan disadvantaged and disaster-affected children around the world. To date, the initiative has delivered over 79,000 SchoolBags to children in 36 countries. A typical SchoolBag contains: 12 pencils, a pencil case with10 biros, 12 colouring pencils, a math set, a ruler, 6 exercise books (two each of lined, squared, plain), a water bottle and a lunch box which includes a spork. The cost to sponsor a SchoolBag is Ã???Ã??Ã?Â£20 and to ensure equality amongst the beneficiaries, the SchoolBags are all identical with brand new contents.
Each SchoolBag is numbered enabling donors to track their funded SchoolBag(s) on the SIAB website www.schoolinabag.org and through data collected by our distribution partners SIAB strive to provide donors with as much information as possible about the beneficiary of their SchoolBag.
