Provides for over 200 children’s needs from clothes and shoes, to school books, supplies and materials.

  • Bring a Bag for Kids

  • Project Textbook Reuse

  • General donations to supply books and school supplies to the children

 

Bring a Bag for Kids:

To respond to the need for quality clothes, shoes, hygiene, backpacks, and school supplies KVF takes donations for all of these items. We will purchase some items in country as well but the quality and longevity of what can be purchased in America is far better, so we encourage this. This is a fun way to donate for all the bargain shoppers out there. Go hit the closeout and clearance sales and then mail items to the KVF office in the US and we will fill and assign backpacks with the items to volunteers coming to Tanzania who are willing to bring a bag for the kids.

All clothing and shoe sizes are needed for children from 0-17 years for boys and girls. Hygiene items needed are toothbrushes and toothpaste. School supplies needed include pencils, small sharpeners, pens, solar powered calculators, crayons, colored pencils, and simple backpacks. Please mail items as cheap as possible to the US KVF office at: 565 S Owasso Blvd W, Roseville MN 55113. Please include receipts or prices/value of items and an email address so we can mail you a tax-deductible receipt.

 

Project Textbook Reuse:

We are looking for school textbooks and storybooks from elementary to college level. If you have unneeded books or know of schools who are getting rid of old books please send them to us so we can get them to the children. School libraries are under-stocked and children often struggle to learn the information they are being taught in school because they do not have books to reference. Please either mail items as cheap as possible to the US KVF office at 565 S Owasso Blvd W, Roseville MN 55113, or contact us to arrange for pick-up of larger numbers of books. Please include receipts or prices/value of items and an email address so we can mail you a tax-deductible receipt.

General Donations:

Buy books, school supplies, hygiene, food, and farm and building supplies, and other items needed by the children. We have options for one-time and recurring general donations at: DONATE
