CofC students giving back

      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - College of Charleston students are working to make sure students in Africa have the same educational opportunities that they have.

      As part of the Kick It Forward 2013 program, students will go to Cameroon, Africa to deliver school supplies to children.

      Students made 1,500 school supply packages on Sunday.{} The supplies were donated by individuals, schools and businesses from across the state.

      The students are also bringing 3,000 dictation books, over 100 soccer balls and 10 pumps, and three rack servers.

      In March, the students will travel to Africa to to deliver the supplies, create clean water education programs, empower women with micro loans and facilitate a business plan competition for businesses and medical universities in the areas surrounding Cameroon.

      Education is free in Cameroon, but families often encourage their kids to work and support the family over going to school.
