What to Pack to Help Local Communities?

(no comments)

Have you booked a Kariega safari and wondering if you can bring anything to make a positive impact to our local communities? If so, please read on! We have a dedicated Foundation that works collaboratively with our neighbours, particularly the wonderful people in Ekuphumleni, Marselle and Klipfontein.

We are also proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to help make a lasting impact in these communities along with the Kariega Foundation. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring much needed supplies for schools and early learning centres in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

How Can You Help?

We have collated a list of essential items needed by two of the Kariega Foundation projects, a local school and the Kariega rhino protection unit

Please take a look at the list of needs which include educational and art supplies, computer equipment, educational games and toys, musical instruments, sports equipment and first aid supplies. There is also a huge need for clothing for children and babies as well as second hand shoes (in reasonably good condition). The needs of the rhino protection anti-poaching unit include batteries and veterinary supplies.
