Kanuth Adventures Safaris Ltd

Pack for a Purpose does not condone visiting orphanages, as this can often lead to negative impacts on children. The accommodation or tour company working with the orphanage will deliver the supplies in a coordinated and respectful way so that the children can benefit from them. Your generosity is not diminished because you do not interact with the children.


Kulea Childcare Villages, Inc. has a mission of supporting orphaned and vulnerable children, and raising them to become future leaders in Kenya or Tanzania. Kulea is based in Chalinze Tanzania and cares for 17 children through our Sponsorship Program, as well as supports children at partnering schools and home-based care.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of April 8, 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.
