What is Schlep to School?
Hi! I am Hamdia. I am 10 years old and I go to school at Tzedek’s partner school in Kumbungu, Northern Ghana. I have to walk to school because my parents can’t afford to pay for any other form of transport. I love going to school and when I grow up I would like to be a nurse.

Hello! Across the world, children live in poverty, and often have no choice but walk for miles to get to school, sometimes across treacherous terrain and on an empty stomach. My friends and I will be Schlepping to School on the 7th of June to raise awareness and funds and give the gift of a precious education to children in Northern Ghana. I promise to take a lot of selfies along the way so follow me on Instagram or Facebook! Thank you for supporting me!
