MWAM Back to School Project 2024

Our annual charity backpack event is back and we need your support to pack vital back-to-school supplies for children from Dandelion Time!

Dandelion Time is a small charity that Marshall Wace has been supporting for a number of years 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 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.

Once again, the goal is to provide a backpack full of supplies for 50 children currently attending Dandelion Time. Every £27.50 donated through the Marshall Wace matching scheme will give a vulnerable child and their family the dignity and practical help they need to start the school year in the best possible way.

Donations of any size towards this goal are greatly appreciated!
