For the month of March, we will be running our very popular Basics Kit campaign!  Students need underwear, socks, and camisoles/undershirts!  For just $30, a student will be given a collection of items to boost their self-esteem and comfort! 

If you are in Canada, send an etransfer to info@DekporSchool.org

If outside Canada, use the website's Donate button.

Last year we were able to help 220 students! Thanks for making a difference!
