I discovered Pack for a Purpose on my first trip to Africa several years ago and reached out again to Rebecca, the Founder for my trip in June 2022. I was able (with help from some friends) to deliver approximately 20 pounds each to three different participating nonprofits. I had an overnight layover in Johannesburg and the two SA groups from Salute Africa and Lebo Soweto Backpackers came to my airport hotel to pick up their specific requested items*. The 3rd group, Kwando Safaris, which supports Mummy’s Angels, met me at the airport in Maun, Botswana where I was changing planes. The contact folks were all very responsive with emailing and flexible in accommodating my travel plans. This is a fabulous idea and worthwhile endeavor – I only wish I had know about the group years ago!!
*While it is not a requirement of our participants to collect supplies at airports, hotels, or any other location outside of their accommodation or tour company, we are always delighted when they are able to do so.
