For many parents, school supplies are unaffordable. Notebooks, textbooks, rulers, pens and pencils ensure a productive and fun school year for students.

Support a Youth Champion to participate in healthy food preparation and distribution activities at school and within their community.

Toys and games teach important skills and let kids be kids while under supervision in well-resourced early childhood development centres.

Teach a child to read and foster a love of reading among young students by stocking libraries and reading corners that open up the world to students.

Supply a classroom with indoor garden supplies for students to learn about growing healthy foods and prepare for planting in their school or community garden in the Spring.

A desk, chair, chalk boards, maps and other essentials make learning possible. Your gift lets kids explore the world from within a well-equipped classroom.

Qualified, well-supported teachers deliver better educational outcomes. Invest in teacher training and give every child a chance at a quality education.

School breakfasts and lunches feed hungry tummies and fuel learning each school day.

School and community gardens give students hands-on experience to grow, harvest and prepare food from seed to table. Children, youth and community members come together to improve food security for all.

This gift includes the essentials every student needs to succeed: a uniform, school supplies and classroom basics

Cooking classes are a fun, engaging way for children to connect with community members to learn how to prepare healthy, well-balanced meals together.

A school latrine improves student health and hygiene, and significantly reduces sanitation-related illness - plus, it helps girls attend and stay in school.

How It Works


Buy it here. We'll source it there

The teachers' gift you purchase will be sourced locally, i.e. as close to the recipient as possible. This approach provides an extra boost to local economies while keeping transport costs to a minimum.

When you buy a gift for your teacher from our Best.Gift.Ever catalogue you will be able to select a FREE "teacher" themed PDF or eCard (pictured below) to send to your teacher. You can also select from other card designs such as holiday theme, gift specific themed plus many more. You can also buy teachers' gifts without selecting a card.
