    Project #1

    The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources. VFAPU tries to ease some of the burdens by protecting the wildlife and habitat from poacher pressure (subsistence and commercial), as well as by rescuing and rehabilitating animals injured by human interference.

    Additionally, we train and try to find employment for ex-poachers so they have a sustainable income without having to do harm to flora and fauna.

    Project #2

    The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of our local wildlife and natural resources. Education is also important, and VFAPU and its partners try to reach children at an early age through school and community awareness programs.

    All the needs are current as of October 20, 2021
    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.
