The website enables travellers to give practical help to places they visit by bringing things that are really needed.

It's not about taking sweets and pens to encourage chilidren to beg; nor is it about handing out money to people who might tell a good story but whose scruples are far from good.It is about helping small, legitimate organisations that get little or no help from their government or from local or international NGO's.

It's about travellers helping other travellers to give practical assistance to people who have the least, but often give the most.

You can tell the website what is needed and find out what to take.
