This is the third Backpacks Full of Hope trip, and we believe it is an important one. During the first and second trips, some of the most impactful feedback we had from those we were helping was hearing how much it meant to have people travel there to provide assistance. The work we are doing to aid our fellow Americans matters, and we’d love to have you be a part of it!

If you haven’t had a chance yet, please watch our latest video about the Backpacks Full of Hope project, and please consider sharing it with your circle (ex., post to Facebook, etc.). Additionally, if you are interested in donating to the trip or providing a sponsorship, contact family.engagement@ileadschools.org today!


A Bit of History
Just a few months after the disaster, iLEAD families mobilized and launched Backpacks Full of Hope humanitarian initiative to help rebuild. In March 2018, learners, family members, and iLEAD staff set out to help with the reconstruction and reforestation efforts. The trip was a huge success, but it was apparent that much work still remained. In April 2019, we returned – this time with over 30 backpackers, including 12 from that original group.
