In both cases, please contact us by email (info@world-unite.de) at least 3 days in advance to arrange a visiting/meeting time and place.


    Muungoni is a typical small Zanzibar village where there are no tourist hotels. It is located in the south of the island at the road connecting Zanzibar Town with the south-east coast (Paje, Jambiani, Michamvi) and south-west coast (Kizimkazi).

    The Dalailul-Khairati Nursery & Primary School was founded by the community of Muungoni. The school allows children from rural areas the opportunity to receive an education. However, the school is poorly equipped and basic school supplies are missing. The school serves approximately 60 children from the ages of 3 through 12.

    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.
