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

Dana’s Story


In October 2016 my husband and I enjoyed our “holiday of a lifetime ” – safaris adventure to Kenya. We stayed in the Samburu and the Massai Mara. Prior to leaving I read about Pack for Purpose via our wonderful lodge’s website (Saruni Lodges) and was keen to get involved. It’s easy to do – click into your destination and you can see what items are needed.

I went out and bought a small but good selection of school items. I wish it could have been more but due to the size of the planes we were traveling on, we had very limited weight restrictions. I live in London, and with the number of Pound shops we have here, it is a very inexpensive way of bringing over supplies of school stationery that are worth their weight in gold!

Pack for Purpose provides you with easy to print signage that you attach to your pack and you simply hand them over on arrival at your lodge – it can’t get any easier!! I do hope my small contribution brings a smile to some schoolchildren in Samburu.
