Lauren’s Story

Lauren's

I found out about Pack for a Purpose through Global Basecamps. This past March, my mother and I traveled to Tanzania for a nine day safari through the country’s northern circuit. Our first official day of safari began with a visit to Esilalei Maasai Village. Here we had the chance to visit the primary school that Global Basecamps has had a hand in building. In anticipation of our visit we checked out Pack For A Purpose’s packing list to see what we could contribute to the school. We ended up bringing an entire suitcase full of school supplies, everything from pencils and workbooks, to flashcards and soccer balls. The reaction on the children’s faces when we revealed what we had brought them was priceless. This visit was definitely a highlight of our trip. We will continue to Pack for a Purpose in the future! Such a rewarding experience!
