PROJECT KNAPSACK & the Sean Anderson Foundation
In 2015, the Sean Anderson Foundation formed a very special partnership with Project Knapsack (www.projectknapsack.org ). Founded by Porcha L. Dodson, Project Knapsack partners elementary and secondary students in the United States with pen pals in Africa; moreover, the schools on the developing side of the exchange receive new backpacks filled with school supplies via Project Knapsack and the organization’s partnership with Staples.
As this partnership continues to grow and expand, you can check this page for updates including an archive of links to blog posts, photos and more!

Being that this partnership is so special and unique, we wanted to make sure that the Sean Anderson Foundation’s community of supporters were able to fully understand the scope and magnitude of this relationship. Thank you to our dear friend and ally in positive change, Porcha Dodson (Founder, Project Knapsack), for taking the time to do an interview with us here at the Sean Anderson Foundation.
