One of the main reasons we created Packs Project was to help raise awareness and funds for education relief in developing nations. As technologically advances as we are, illiteracy is still a major issue globally and we firmly believe that education is the key to solving issues in the long run. It is integral for creating opportunities for the future in developing countries and helps break the cycle of poverty allowing future generations to better their lives.
First Step to Our Goal
For our first goal, we partnered with a social initiative called BuildOn to help facilitate the build out of 1 school in Burkina Faso. As an orgnazation, buildOn is focussed on solving the education crisis internaltionally while motivating students domestically to help break the cycle of poverty through vigorous community service. The funds raised through Packs Project are divulged, equally, towards both these intiatives as we look to build a brand together that represent something bigger than just a luxury, luggage line.
What is buildOn?
buildOn is a social initiative that focuses on youth development internationally and domestically through the channels of education. As an organization, it empowers U.S. urban youth to transform their neighborhoods and the world through intensive community service. Globally, they are constructing a new school every three days in some of the economically poorest countries around the world help to build stronger educated communities and in turn bring social and economic stability.
