Project

Dingani Primary School is located in the small town of Dete, close to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The school has over 300 pupils from the ages of 4 through 12 years old, and the school is in dire need of equipment and maintenance in order to continue the education and development of their pupils.

Through Pack For a Purpose, we are collecting donations from our clients to enable the teachers to educate the pupils in a stable environment with the basic necessities required.

The current pass rate is 14% at Dingani Primary. They are targeting a 50% pass rate by the year 2021.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 22, 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.
