Karina's

Backpack Project

Karina’s Backpack Project (KBP), fiscally sponsored by the Joy of Sharing Foundation, was founded by Karina Tarsadia in 2018 to celebrate the back to school experience and equip young students with the necessary supplies to begin the school year. Karina was inspired to create the Backpack Project after having the opportunity to do service trips in places like India, Cambodia, and Africa through her family’s Foundation, the Tarsadia Foundation. With the emphasis her family placed on education and putting her best foot forward, she created the Backpack Project to help other young students feel equipped with the materials they needed to put their best foot forward in school.
