Safari Joe – East African Adventure Safaris

Project

Kirindi Primary School is located in Nazigo District, about an hour drive from Jinja. The school serves 350 children, from the ages of 5 through 12 years old.

The school is desperately under-funded and is always in need of supplies for the teachers and students. Many of the students come from very poor families.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 26, 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.
