May 27, 2013 – Kabul, Afghanistan – Supreme Foundation, a registered charitable trust established by the global supply chain solutions provider Supreme Group, has recently organized an education campaign in Kabul, providing more than 550 school kits of essential classroom supplies to orphans and disadvantaged children.
The kits were distributed to ‘Tomorrows Hope Foundation’, an orphanage in Kabul; ‘Afghan Action’, a specialized school and training program that helps disadvantaged youth learn how to weave and sell handmade Afghan carpets; and Karwan Elm Educational Centre. In addition to the school kits, Supreme Foundation also purchased classroom supplies for teachers such as English and math text books, multi lingual story books and art materials.
“Many Afghan children are caught in an inescapable spiral of poverty because they are too poor to get a proper education. We believe that today’s learners are tomorrow’s leaders, so we are proud to support the education of children in Afghanistan and offer them the chance of a better life,” said Victoria Frost, Supreme Group’s Director of Communications and Treasurer of Supreme Foundation.
