School kits needed
From Philadelphia, Pa., (top photo) to Tbilisi, Georgia, (bottom photo) school kits are sent long distances to equip children with the school supplies they need to succeed. IOCC recently distributed 15,000 school kits to underprivileged children in the Republic of Georgia.
“When I went home, I kept telling everybody that I received school kits, and I was almost flying from joy all day long,” said Mariam, 8, a second-grader in the southern Georgia town of Akhaltsikhe. The school kit distribution was part of a larger, ongoing IOCC project to improve the quality of education in Georgia.
