The Joggo bag was created with a passion to make a positive impact in our world. The Joggo spirit embodies a message of humanity to make small ripples today for big transformations tomorrow. One of the ways we do this is by donating proceeds to educational initiatives for youth impacted by humanitarian crisis.
According to the UN Refugee Agency, more than 59.5 million people are forcibly displaced from their homes due to conflict, violence, and war - this is an astounding increase of 22 million in just 10 years. More disturbing is that more than half of the world’s refugees are children. The escalating problem needs our support to help provide basic human necessities to refugees; this includes education and skills to help rebuild lives in new lands they must now call home.
CARE Canada provides effective and useful education and training for refugees all over the world. Education for refugees has been found to benefit youth in particular, who are eager to learn and build a better life using their own skills. Last year, CARE provided access to education and training for more than 161,000 people in 21 countries vulnerable to or affected by conflict and disasters.
Joggo has partnered with CARE Canada to help provide an education for youth refugees. With the purchase of each Joggo bag we are contributing towards CARE’s education initiatives in different parts of the world.
