Fill the Backpack – School supply distribution
Senegalese children suffer the most severe deprivation in matters of housing and education; in rural areas and in families where the head of the household has little or no education and health concerns are often worse. Despite progress, poverty remains high, particularly in rural and remote areas and children are more greatly affected by poverty than other segments of the population. #babezoey for #qsvkids has initiated a #fill the backpack” project to raise funds for children to assist in everyday needs for basic school supplies.
The future of African communities depends on the educational empowerment of our young people. If our youth are helped with the dilemmas they face, such as harsh poverty and lack of concrete resources, they will not be equipped to lead their communities in the future. Since we founded our school supply program pre nonprofit status in 2013, we have provided school uniforms, books, and writing supplies to children in our Senegalese communities to offset the ﬁnancial burden these items have on poor families.
QSV spends approximately 20% of volunteer time committed to fundraising for it’s charitable and educational causes. To improve the overall quality of life for women and children in Senegal, West Africa is a honor but never easy.
QSV focus programs and events are designed with our community clients, not just for them. We worked with real women in villages on what they need and how we can collectively better train them on sustaining themselves after the event is completed.

School Supply Donations Program
The primary purpose of this ongoing program is to supply underprivileged school children and classrooms in less affluent neighborhoods with the basic materials needed to exist and thrive in education.
The program name emphasizes the idea that contributing school supplies is not simply a matter of easing a disadvantaged family’s needs. Rather, supporting education in this way allows contributors to provide backing for the students development and future.
How It Works
The #fillthebackpacks Program accepts donations of pencils, pens, notebooks, paper, backpacks, computers, and other school supplies from office supply stores, grocery stores, and other venues, and then organize a event to distribute the school supplies free of charge to individuals and schools.
The #fillthebackpacks Program fosters close relationships with family outreach coordinators and teachers at inner/outer-city schools, that are the primary contacts to families in need. Donation requests can me submitted below.
