What to pack

Anyone can take part in The Backpack Project – it’s a fun activity for schools, clubs and families to get involved in. 

Take a look at the list below so you know what items to pack.

Handy Hints

  • Clothing for children aged between 4-12 years is suitable.
  • Second-hand items are fine if they are in good condition.
  • Please label your backpack to indicate whether it is suitable for a boy or girl, and suggest what age.
  • Please don’t include any liquids (including liquid soap) and don’t be tempted to add any other gifts such as toys or sweets, as these can cause problems with Customs during delivery.
