    Contes Asia

    Pack for a Purpose does not condone visiting orphanages, as this can often lead to negative impacts on children. The accommodation or tour company working with the orphanage will deliver the supplies in a coordinated and respectful way so that the children can benefit from them. Your generosity is not diminished because you do not interact with the children.

    Project #1

    The Childsrights orphanages are located in Jaipur, Khajuraho, and Pushkar. The orphanage supports 57 children from ages 5 through 16 years old. A volunteer from Spain has run the project for the past 12 years, helping and encouraging children to have a better education and a better life.

    Project #2

    PraveenLata Sansthan is a Jaipur based NGO operating across Rajasthan to alleviate the problems of the poor and their struggle to obtain a life of justice and dignity. They focus on child welfare, women empowerment, & rural development. Contes Asia specifically supports Laadli, a remedial education program for about 35 under-privileged girls.

    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.
