Since 2012, Christmas In A Box, organised by Slum2School Africa, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships for out-of-school children in remote communities across Nigeria, has been an annual event held in December to show love, spend time with children, and inspire them with gifts, games, and fun activities. Individuals and organizations are encouraged to donate gift items, which are wrapped in boxes and distributed to children in remote communities.
This year, Slum2School Africa is inviting all interested individuals and organizations to participate in the 10th Edition of Christmas in a Box, which aims to spread Christmas cheer to 10,000 children in 10 days.
This exciting and memorable event will bring smiles to the faces of children during the festive period, and you can participate by following the steps below:
