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.

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.
