Dingani Primary School is located in the small town of Dete, close to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. The school has over 300 pupils from the ages of 4 through 12 years old, and the school is in dire need of equipment and maintenance in order to continue the education and development of their pupils.
Through Pack For a Purpose, we are collecting donations from our clients to enable the teachers to educate the pupils in a stable environment with the basic necessities required.
The current pass rate is 14% at Dingani Primary. They are targeting a 50% pass rate by the year 2021.

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.
