School Supplies


Help children succeed

The first day of school can be an anxious one for any child. Imagine the first-day jitters of a refugee child—the new kid not only in class, but in an entirely new country. We offer school supplies, along with caring guidance and support, for refugee children learning in person or remotely in the U.S. $20 can fill a child’s backpack with school supplies, helping a new kid feel ready to learn.

"The IRC is the gold standard of aid groups working with refugees. I’ve seen it in action in Darfur, Chad, Central African Republic, Greece, Jordan, South Sudan and other places."  -Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist
