One bag. One child. One year.

Even though tuition can cost as little as $10 per year in some developing countries, 75 million children lack access to education. After witnessing the debilitating effects of poverty in Central America, Oliver Shuttlesworth resolved to create a sustainable solution that would equip children in developing countries with the tools needed to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities for generations to come. The philosophy behind Esporos was born: buy a bag, send a child in need to school for a year.

Even though tuition can cost as little as $10 per year in some developing countries, 75 million children lack access to education. After witnessing the debilitating effects of poverty in Central America, Oliver Shuttlesworth resolved to create a sustainable solution that would equip children in developing countries with the tools needed to build a brighter future for themselves and their communities for generations to come. The philosophy behind Esporos was born: buy a bag, send a child in need to school for a year. Made with heavy duty natural fabrics, Shuttlesworth’s Austin, TX, company promises its roomy totes and backpacks will “age better than your Jansport.” Esperos also pays a living wage, adheres to ethical workplace standards and is working with local merchants in the areas in which it operates to stimulate growth and create jobs.
