Project

The Tangneduk Primary School in Homa Bay and the Mobjap Primary School in Kibera, Kenya, serve 150 children from ages 5 through 12 years old.

Mobjap Primary School tragically burned down in December 2017. The children and faculty have lost all supplies that were inside the school during the time of the incident. We are aiming to rebuild the school and bring the children the educational tools, supplies and resources they deserve.

An asterisk (*) before an item indicates this item is most urgently needed.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of April 24, 2018

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.
