For a truly touching experience, during your safari you have the opportunity to meet the children of the remote Gotu and Kachuru Primary Schools and give them a chance to fulfil their potential by taking with you some greatly needed school supplies. Current areas which the Head Teachers have highlighted that they would dearly like assistance with include:
Text Books: for all subjects, $20 for a pack of 4 books – over 100 needed
Furniture: 20 desks US$ 40 each; 8 tables US$ 80 each; 8 chairs US$ 50 each, 2 blackboards US$ 40 each
Water tank:10,000 litres US$ 850
Feeding programme: Maize: 4400Kg; Beans: 2200Kg; Cooking oil: 3 x 20 litres for one year. The capacity to feed children in rural schools improves student attendance as struggling parents willingly send their children to a school where they are fed every day.
Contact Us in advance of your travel date if you would like to make your donation in person, directly to the people who really need it. The schools we support are remote, another reason why our support is so important! However, they can be visited on a full day out, and combined with a visit to Chandler’s Falls (Gotu school), or Magado Crater (Kachuru school).
Donations to school infrastructure, ie towards water storage, building maintenance or improvement, can be made through the Cheli & Peacock Community Trust, and please feel free to discuss any donation with Chania Frost, who operates our trust.
If you are considering bringing donations from abroad, visit the Pack for a Purpose website for very specific advice on what is needed. Please do note that when flying within Kenya, the internal flight weight restriction is 15kg and may therefore limit what you can carry with you to the camps and donate to the rural communities in person. We can always, however, donate anything over and above your weight limit on your behalf at a later date.
