We rely on donations, both in-kind and monetary, to run our multifaceted programs—everything from construction paper to lab equipment gets put to great use with us. However, shipping to Kenya is extremely complicated and costly; in general, we suggest that people interested in making a specific in-kind item donation allow us to purchase the product in Kenya, and donate the cost instead.
If you are interested in this option, please email Jessica at Jessica@shininghopeforcommunities.org for Kenya-price information.
Below are lists of items most needed at the school, clinic, and community center. If you are by chance visiting us in Kenya, or know someone who is, many of the items able to be brought in a suitcase for the school!
