    Project

    Haymu Primary School is a small school in the Karatu district and nearby Gibb’s Farm. The school serves 600 students from ages 6 through 8 years old. An extraordinarily dedicated and caring headmistress already achieves great academic results with very limited resources. With your help, the sky will be the limit for these children.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of August 7, 2020

    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.
