Gifts for Village School

Will appreciate any information you can provide...

We visited an orphanage in Kigio, but I'd like to donate to a village school, anywhere in Kenya.

Sending gifts is problematic as they often don't reach their destination if you get my drift! The packages that do get through then attract a fee before being released by the postal service . In Kenya Its not quite as easy as it sounds unfortunately.

It really isn't worth trying to send anything. If there is somebody you know and trust in Kenya, better to send them the money and ask them to source things locally for the school.
