Project

Joy House School is located in Mukuru slums, Nairobi, Kenya. The school has 407 primary school children. All of them are from low-income families who live on no more than $2 per day. Your supplies go a long way in shaping the future of these needy children. You are welcome to visit the school, and we can facilitate this for you.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 27, 2016

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.
