For your consideration
If you would like to further assist the villagers, you might give these pencils or books to the school teacher who can then distribute them; you could bring toothbrushes and toothpaste, also to give it to the teacher or the village health volunteer.The best way to help probably is through the donation box which you can find in either lodge. The money contributed there will be split among the eight visited villages and be put in the villages developing funds. Villagers use this money for community projects (like building latrines) or for community ceremonies. In this way the villagers can do with the money what they most need. | To Top |
