  1. @@PT123 Hello, We are delighted to hear you will be Packing for a Purpose on your trip to Kenya. When you return, we hope you will share Your Story on the Pack for a Purpose website here. We cannot legally provide information regarding Customs, as they differ so greatly from country to country around the world. Perhaps this is a topic you could ask others in the forum. We recommend that you check with the consulate regarding Customs before you travel.

  4. Since our first post in 2011, Pack for a Purpose has grown to over 485 accommodations and tour companies across the globe with more than 260 being in Africa. We also have seven accommodations and tour companies in India. All of these accommodations and tour companies offer safari experiences, and each of our participants supports local community projects ranging from schools to anti-poaching projects. Our participants focus on five initiatives: education, health, child welfare, animal welfare, and socioeconomic development. Our newly designed website can be searched by destination alone or by initiative. When you choose to become a Pack for a Purpose traveler, the safari you take goes much farther than the miles you travel. By going to our website, you will find the specific needs list for the projects supported by our participants, How to Pack information, everything you need to make each safari more meaningful. Since our inception, Dec. 17, 2009, generous Pack for a Purpose travelers have taken over 40,600 kilos of supplies meeting essential needs in over 60 countries. PfaP travelers have shared their stories on our website and continue to inspire other travelers. Our newly designed website includes our first shop, which includes high-quality Pack for a Purpose merchandise. From T-shirts to hoodies, we've got you covered. A large portion of the sales directly benefit our mission to positively impact communities around the world by assisting travelers who want to take meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit. We encourage you to share the Pack for a Purpose website across your social media and to check back on our website from time to time as we are continually adding new safari locations.

  5. I am a big believer in asking .I learned as a teacher a long time ago no does not kill you and if people think you are requesting something for a good reaon,they often say yes! Even going on small weight limit flights a person could take one kilo of supplies. Every little bit will help. R/:)
  6. The airlines as such do not "work with us". When we took all 455 pounds of supplies to Zambia after they landed in Lusaka, Pro-Flight took it from there. They have an agreement with Project Luangwa to take supplies for them at no charge. They sent the supplies to Robin Pope Safrais-we were staying with them the first and last part of our trip, as space was available on the flights. Everything was recieved within 4 days- an amazing job. A local American Airlines contact in Raleigh ,who met with us and saw what our website is about, told me "If you collect it, you can take it for free". He might not have know me very well. For all these reasons we only suggest a small amount -2 kgs. on our website. If you are landing first in a big city, your tour operator may have a way to collect more .They might collect it and then send it along with the weekly supplies to the camp. Rebeca
