Bomani Tented Lodge

Project

Bomani Tented Lodge supports the Ngamo Primary School, which serves 245 students from ages 6 through 12 years old, and the Ngamo Secondary School, which serves 110 students from ages 13 through 16 years old.

Over the past five years, Imvelo has ploughed over $2 million into local communities. At Ngamo High School, near Bomani, we have erected a new classroom block, students’ toilets, installed and equipped a new borehole, built six teachers’ cottages, built a teachers’ kitchen, as well as two new teachers’ ablution blocks.

At Ngamo Primary School, a new classroom block for grade 0 and a library were built and filled with over 400 books.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 28, 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.
