Education Access

A WeHero DIY Volunteer Event

What is Education Access?

250 million children across the world lack basic reading, writing and math skills. If these students are lucky enough to attend school, they often don’t have the resources to purchase the necessary school supplies. Our non-profit partners built over 300 schools and education programs in the US and across third world countries last year. We’re happy to support these efforts and provide the much-needed school supplies for these students.

The Education Access Project is a WeHero DIY Volunteer Event delivering kits that have the necessary school supplies to children of different regions throughout the globe. All the supplies for these kits arrive at your companies doorstep ready for your team to put them together. The kits are designed to be fun and to inspire the kids to want to go to school and stay in school. You’ll be adding your own touch and message to each kit you create, drawing fun pictures on the bags, leaving letters of encouragement, and giving them a snapshot with a Polaroid so they can see the volunteer behind the gift of school supplies and education.

What does your DIY event come with?

Video & Instructions

We provide a video presentation to share with the participating volunteers. Send the video in advanced or throw it up on the big screen! We also provide detailed instructions to have the perfect event.


There is an art component to this event. All of the school supplies go into canvas bags. Draw on the bags and make the education kit something truly special for a child.

A Fun Activity

One component of all of our events is obviously the volunteering itself, but we always work to provide an activity on the side to put your team in the shoes of the recipient.

Polaroid Camera

These children are always so excited and moved that someone across the globe, thought of them, and gave them a very special kit to go to school. Because this is so special to them, we send a Polaroid camera so that you can send pictures of the people behind their education kit.


Use the WeHero notepaper to write the recipient of your kit a short letter. Encourage them to study and keep working to achieve their dreams. It means a lot to them that someone across the globe is thinking of them.

Pre-paid Shipping Labels

Shipping is easy! Attach the pre-paid shipping labels and UPS will pick your package up the day after your event.

Address Form

We’ve provided a form for employees to leave their name, email, and physical address. We do this so we can send you thank you cards from our team.

School Supplies

Each kit contains many of the supplies children need for school. These supplies are difficult to source in the regions of the world they are delivered. Pencils, notebooks, crayons, globes, and more all go into the kit!
