Accommodation

    Bush Ways Safaris

    If you live in the USA, and would like to take a suitcase of medical supplies selected specifically for the medical project below, please contact oc@njt.net. We are pleased to partner with OC Not Just Tourists to provide useful and requested medical supplies for clinics and hospitals across the globe. Your only expense will be the cost of shipping from California to your residence in the USA. If you choose to do this, you will make a Big Impact!
    Pack for a Purpose does not condone visiting orphanages, as this can often lead to negative impacts on children. The accommodation or tour company working with the orphanage will deliver the supplies in a coordinated and respectful way so that the children can benefit from them. Your generosity is not diminished because you do not interact with the children.

    Project #1

    The Medical Help Project is a mobile clinic which works with the general hospital in Maun (Letsholathebe) to come on a monthly basis to check on the health of community members, as well as, staff members. Most of the community cannot afford to travel or are too old, or too sick to travel the six hour round trip to the hospital every month to receive their I.E BP medications. This project helps the community in a huge way.

    Project #2

    Bana Ba Letsatsi is a home away from home for children, helping children who either have no parents, or children whose parents are sick or cannot support them. This project feeds, clothes, teaches, and takes care of the children. We are proud to be able to support and work with Bana Ba Letsatsi

    Project #3

    The Bush Ways foundation Funds the Khwai Gunners which is Soccer team made out of young men from Khwai, Maun, Sankuyo. These are men who want to better themselves and maybe one day go far in the sports area (professional soccer) as well make a positive influence in the younger generation. They have so far won the second division premier league and we hope to continue offering our support in order for them to go even further.

    Project #4

    Khwai pre-school is located in the remote Khwai Village to the east of the Khwai Reserve (and south west of the Chobe National Park). The school serves 46 children from ages 4 through 6 years old. This pre-school ensures that education is both prioritized and assured, during the important formative years in an environment with limited formal education.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of October 20, 2021
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    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. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    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.
