What is a Bedkit?
As Sleeping Children Around the World emerged in 1970, our purpose was crystal clear: give every child the opportunity to have a good night's sleep. With sleep, the promise of a better tomorrow is realized.
The consequences of deprived sleep are well documented. It is a fact that poor sleep leads to long term issues, especially in young children. Sleep has tremendous effects on health, memory, emotions and academic potential. No child should ever be deprived of a peaceful sleep.
MANUFACTURING BEDKITS WITHIN THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
Bedkits have benefitted more than a million children in 34 developing countries around the world and are largely comprised of the following items:
- A mat or mattress/bedding
- A mosquito net to combat the threat of malaria & other vector-borne diseases
- Schoolbag and school supplies
- Clothing and footwear
All items are sourced locally where possible, with positive economic impact to the local community.
