A New Day Dawns for Pack for a Purpose Learn More »

Amy’s Story


We are a team of 6th grade educators granted a fellowship to participate in an ecotour of the Rio Napo River in Ecuador to give students a unique view of the environment. We encountered Pack for a Purpose on the Yachana Lodge website. What a blessing to have found the information we needed to inspire us to collect supplies for other children. Our own students and colleagues donated the supplies and money to fly the extra suitcases filled with games, pencils, and art utensils. It was truly a humbling, life changing experience to be able to give the children a part of our daily lives! Thank you Pack for a Purpose for inspiring this team of educators!
