With a pencil in one hand and a paper in the other of a child, the possibilities are endless. They can dream of anything. Just a little can ignite a spark, a flame that can change the world. Pass the flame to them through a small gift of a pencil and paper. Something as small and cheap as a pencil that we take for granted, that child sees it as a tool to complete their education. Let us pass the flame to the next generation.
The mission for this project is to give the proper education to children who don't have the correct means to get it by providing them with school supplies. We plan to send the items over, distribute them to the kids, get to know them, let them know about the saving grace of Christ and that they are truly loved. We believe that education is a right, not a privilege. So help us pass the flame to the next generation to become doctors, artists, nurses, lawyers, dancers, singers. Lifesavers.
