Huntersville, United States - September 14, 2018 /PressCable/ —

nobackpackday.org has released a potentially controversial article “changing the world one backpack at a time”, bringing some cause for concern, as the article may upset People with children and schools.

The article covers the subject how one child is seeking to bring awareness to under privilege children around the world, by providing backpack to school children, who otherwise would carry their books by hand or on their heads to and from school. My article aims to provide readers with the disparity of wealth and how those who are well off could help those in developing countries. This article targets parents, students, schools and readers. A certain element of the article is set to spark discontent amongst Parents, schools, children, young adults.

How it all began

Below is a portion of the piece, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:

I was going through my pictures of my first mission trip and subsequent trips. There is a picture of me carrying an AIDS orphan who was in an orphanage that we had visited. We learned that the baby was 2 months old and had lost both parents.

A spokesperson for nobackpackday.org, Mongai Fankam, says “Of course nobackpackday project never sets out to intentionally upset anybody. The aim of our articles is first and foremost to bring awareness to the under privileged children around the world. It is critical, however, that we stay dedicated to our true voice.

Although our “changing the world one backpack at a time” might unsettle people with children and schools, our duty is to our readers. We believe it’s more important to give a complete and unbiased view than to be politically correct.”

Although there has been no backlash as of yet, the possibility exists as the article highlights how unfair the wealth of the world is distributed.

nobackpackday.org has been a provider of in depth articles in the Education market for one year.

nobackpackday.org has stated the future aims for the website is shine the light on under privilege children around the world. So nobackpackday.org hopes any controversy will pass quickly and re-emphasizes no offence is or was intended.
