Dandelion Time is a small charity that Lumyna supports through the Dot Impact programme from Raise Your Hands. From their smallholding in Kent, they combine nature with family therapy to help traumatised children rebuild a central relationship in their lives. The results are striking.
The team there has told us that all of their cohort are experiencing poverty, in most cases extreme and worsening. At the start of every academic year, there are children in each classroom that don’t have the equipment they need to engage with learning. Getting hold of everything they need often means going without other essentials such as food, data or clothing. That's why we are going to get backpacks, filled with school supplies, into the homes of families who are most desperately in need.
The goal is to provide 25 backpacks for some of the children currently being supported by Dandelion Time. It costs around £50 to buy all the essential gear for one primary-aged child (from note books and colouring pencils, to water bottles and lunch bags). We are inviting Lumyna staff to make a contribution towards these costs. The company will top up the rest, so together we'll give vulnerable children the best possible start to the new school year.
Donations of any size towards this goal are greatly appreciated!
