    Where It All Began


    At Where It All Began, our involvement with Capricorn Primary School is two-fold. In line with what the Head, Mrs. Barnard, asked of us, we provide personal hygiene packs for the most needy children in the school who cannot afford basics like toothpaste, soap, shampoo, etc. Additionally, we also provide ten school fees scholarships a year, two for hardship, four for excellence and four for achievement.


    New or Gently Used Children’s Clothing and New or Gently Used Children’s Shoes

    Health/Personal Grooming:
    Bars of Soap, Combs, Deodorant, Hair Brushes, Hair Pins and Elastic Hair Bands, Hand Cream, Multivitamin Tablets, Shampoos, Toothbrushes, Toothpaste, and Washing Powder

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of May 14, 2024
    Where It All Began

    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. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    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.
