Back-to-school shopping isn't just something that happens only in rich countries. Even in poor countries where schools are free, students are still expected to pay for their uniforms and shoes. For the poorest families, this is sometimes impossible. CARE provides "school shoes" to students in places like Tanzania, thus reducing the financial burden associated with education on parents.
The gifts in this catalog are virtual gifts representative of what CARE does to support the fight against poverty.
