Year-long

Y&H in Mauritania delivers supplies twice during the school year.

*Every student receives two sets/year.

Ample Supplies

Students study >5 subjects, so they need more than 1 notebook and pen.

 

One set of supplies =

6 notebooks, 12 pens

We deliver by hand and communicate with school teachers to make sure students' basic supply 

needs are met.
