Project #1

With our LIVEWILDLIFE we want to bring awareness to the fact that conservation work is beneficial for everybody around our area.

Therefore, we work very closely with the local school Vilima Vitatu, which serves 500 children from ages 5 through 12 years old.

This school makes sure that the new, young generation will get a good education in the environment. The teaching is done in Swahili.

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.
