    Many of these supplies can also be purchased inexpensively locally, so if you would like to buy local then please contact ian.macallan@projectluangwa.org. In addition Project Luangwa also make washable menstrual hygiene pads (Ufulu) for girls, helping them to stay in school. These can also be purchased locally. Thank you so much for your support.

    Project #1

    Through our association, Project Luangwa, we aim at improving the education of thousands of children in the general Mfuwe area. We help 8 to 10 schools with sponsorship, equipment and school supplies, construction of classrooms and libraries, as well as sanitary blocks.

    Project #2

    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.

    All the needs are current as of May 17, 2022
    Note: Location is approximated. If you see a lodging that is misplaced or missing, please contact us .

    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.
