Dorothy’s Story

Last year I went with two friends to Kenya and Tanzania, on safari as well as to volunteer at a clinic in Kenya. One friend, Rita Berlin, suggested Pack for a Purpose to Isaac Okumu, who owns Village Life Safari. Isaac, besides being a great safari guide, volunteers whenever he can at a school in the slum of Mukuru, outside of Nairobi. We brought school supplies last year, and I went again this year, bringing as many school supplies as I could manage to carry. We visited the school with Isaac, and it was wonderful to see the children, as well as meet the dedicated faculty members and director of the school. Pack for a Purpose is a wonderful concept put into action.
