    At the Sunwing Foundation, SMILES are just as important as EDUCATION

Having the right tools for school can make all the difference in a child’s education. In developed countries, we often take basic essentials like backpacks, pencils, and books for granted. One of the core objectives of the Sunwing Foundation is to encourage youth education and development in the destinations we serve. As part of this commitment, we have launched the Flying Start initiative to provide students at local schools across our destinations all the essential tools and building blocks for a successful education. The program collects new and gently-used books and Sunwing Airlines flies them down to schools in need of such materials. We also have a campaign where children are provided with a new backpack filled with all the essentials needed for a productive day at school.

How to Get Involved
If you have a collection of books or school materials to donate or if you represent a school or local youth organization that would like to participate in the Flying Start program please contact us at foundation@sunwingtravelgroup.com. We’d love to hear from you!
