    Project #1

    Ekorian’s Mugie Camp, in conjunction with The Moyo Foundation, supports the Mugie School – a primary school open to the Mugie community children, and boarding students from further afield to help supplement the cost of providing tuition and accommodation for a group of special needs students.

    In addition they also support
    Lounieck School – a primary school for the rural Lounieck community children. Their efforts to support the schools are critical to helping the students live a healthy and happy life, and learning to their full potential.

    These schools serve 250 children from the ages of 5 through 15 years old.

    All the needs are current as of November 25, 2020

    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.
