Pack for a Purpose’s mission is to positively impact local communities by helping travellers to take meaningful contributions to the destinations that they visit. They ask tourists to make a lasting impact on the lives of families in the local area by saving a few kilos of space in their suitcase to bring much-needed school or medical supplies.
As part of the initiative, Mahali Mzuri is supporting the nearby Enkenju-Enkoirien Primary School. 120 students aged between four and 14-years-old attend the school. Guests can make a difference by bringing supplies such as books, pens and pencils, beads for art projects, maps and dictionaries.
Mahali Mzuri is a 12-tented luxury camp in the northern region of the Maasai Mara ecosystem. In addition to the twice-daily game drives, guests are incited to visit the local Maasai village and school where they can personally deliver their Pack for a Purpose supplies.
Virgin Limited Edition has worked with Pack for a Purpose since 2014. Through the kindness of guests staying at Kasbah Tamadot, Ulusaba and Necker Island, local community projects have been supported in Morocco, South Africa and the British Virgin Islands.
