Why My Students Hide Their Backpacks
The bushes at school are the safest place.

They hide their backpacks in the bushes to keep their books safe. Their living situations aren’t stable. They don’t always know where they will sleep that night.

Our Impact
Every year we reach more than 5 million kids and the educators who serve them.

We have distributed more than 175 million books and resources in 30 countries. We currently reach an average of 5 million children every year, and serve more than one out of every four classrooms and programs in need.
