Project

Muungoni is a typical small Zanzibar village where there are no tourist hotels. It is located in the south of the island at the road connecting Zanzibar Town with the south-east coast (Paje, Jambiani, Michamvi) and south-west coast (Kizimkazi).

The Dalailul-Khairati Nursery & Primary School was founded by the community of Muungoni. The school allows children from rural areas the opportunity to receive an education. However, the school is poorly equipped and basic school supplies are missing. The school serves approximately 60 children from the ages of 3 through 12.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 29, 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.
