School Supplies Initiative.

In Guinea, a significant number of students face the harsh reality of starting the school year without the basic supplies essential for learning, due to financial constraints faced by their families. This financial strain places an insurmountable burden on families, resulting in students navigating their educational journey ill-equipped and disadvantaged.

Deprived of essential resources like notebooks, pencils, and backpacks, students are unable to fully participate in their education, which impedes their ability to flourish and achieve their aspirations. This lack of access not only affects academic performance but erodes students’ confidence and stifles their potential for success.

At GAED, we believe that access to basic educational materials should not be a barrier to learning, and we are committed to addressing this critical need.

how we help.

We provide free school supplies to students lacking financial resources to ensure they have the tools to learn and succeed in the classroom.

By equipping students with the tools they need, we empower them to pursue their educational journey with confidence and determination.

Through our donor-funded initiative, students receive functional backpacks, meticulously crafted to accompany them on their educational journeys, ensuring they can transport their books and supplies with ease and style. But it doesn’t stop there.

Within each backpack, we meticulously pack a diverse array of essential school supplies tailored to inspire, empower, and equip every student. From the essential notebooks and paper for note-taking and assignments to a vibrant array of pens, pencils, markers, and crayons igniting creativity and facilitating learning, we leave no stone unturned. 

Rounded off with other indispensable essentials like rulers and erasers, we ensure that students are not just prepared for success, but inspired to reach new heights of excellence.

how it works.


We partner closely with schools and teachers to identify students needing assistance, ensuring no student is left behind. By leveraging educators' insights, we efficiently provide the necessary resources and support to those most in need.


At the start of the academic year, we organize a distribution event right within the selected school, where eager students receive backpacks filled with essential supplies, kicking off the school year with excitement and readiness.


Our commitment extends far beyond a single distribution event. We strive to provide ongoing support to students throughout their academic journey, ensuring they have the essential resources needed to succeed.
