Hi, I’m Rashad. Growing up in an inner city area gave me a unique perspective on education. I saw how limited resources affected my school system and community. But I was also able to witness the power of the human spirit. We can make a lot out of a little if given the opportunity, and In this era of digital and social interconnectivity the oppurtunities are endless. I firmly believe that children are the brightest facet of humanity, and in this platform we have a chance to help them reach their fullest potential. It’s my joy to be able to help children in pursuit of knowledge, especially those with limited resources at their disposal. I joined the team at Backpacks for Africa in search of that opportunity.
