Kampur Travel Diaries

Due to difficulties with clearing customs and duties on items in Kenya, we prefer to buy locally rather than have items sent from abroad. To that end, we have established relationships with local suppliers to purchase items at discounted prices, and we try and ensure that all the students in the school get the same type of product at each visit we make. If you would like to purchase these items locally, contact us at info@kampurtraveldiaries.com

Project

This project is located in beautiful Northern Kenya and benefits the children of 6 schools: Sakardala Primary School, Silapani Primary School, Tirgamo Primary School, Ndikirr Primary School, Leyani Primary School, Ewaso Rongai Primary School. Four are community owned and two are government schools. There are approximately 150 children in each school from ages 3 through 12 years old, and we make a minimum of 3 trips a year (once a term) to deliver supplies as per below.

We support the children by giving them stationery therefore reducing the financial burden on their parents, and making them more likely to stay at school. We also provide much needed supplies of school equipment such as chalk to the schools themselves to enable them to continue their classes.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of April 16, 2019

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.
