Kafunta Safaris founded the Mfuwe Junior Football League which quickly evolved in the Mfuwe Sports Association aimed at keeping the children, girls and boys, busy with sports such as soccer ball and netball/basketball while learning the values of team spirit as well as education.
Inflation Pumps, Netball/Basketballs, Soccer Balls, and Team Uniforms/Kits for Soccer
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.
