Bags for Kenya 2019

Annually, students and teachers from Ashton Park School visit Inspirations School in Kenya. While there, we build classrooms and provide educational materials and training.

Following Kenya’s plastic bag ban, we take cloth tote bags with for the local children. The children love to receive these and have many uses for the bags, including carrying their school books and for storing their clothes in.

In 2017 the expedition took just 40 bags, in 2018, with the community’s help, we took 400! A lot of these were lovingly made or decorated by students, teachers and residents within the BS3 community and we would love to repeat this again in 2019.

If you can help by donating a cloth bag, Ashton Park School would love to receive them!

Bags must be well made and strong; suitable for a child to use (ideally unisex) and be no bigger than 50cm x 40cm. We’re happy to accept unwanted, clean bags in good condition; or you can make a bag, maybe using recycled clothes/bedding; or you can buy a cheap tote bag from Hobbycraft for £1 and decorate it. The choice is yours.

Bags should be handed into the Ashton Park reception marked for the attention of Radha Sharma / Bags for Kenya before the end of May 2019.
