Kicheche Valley Camp

Project

Naboisho Primary School is a small community school serving 95 children from ages 6 through 10 years old on the edge of the Masai Mara wildlife conservancy. The school is run by the community and started in 2012.

Many of the parents of the students make very little because they are farmers, making it difficult to contribute towards the development of the school. These challenges, among others, have put the school in a situation whereby school supplies are very limited, and hence the need to seek assistance.

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
