Pack for a purpose
Got a little extra space in your suitcase you could use it to make a difference in someone life. We are proud members of pack for a purpose as Mara Chui Resort together with Olalamutia Environment project
Mara chui resort works closely with olelomutia Primary School located 500m away. The school is desperately underfunded and is always in need of supplies for its teachers and students. Many of the 400 students come from very humble families and the school is not covered by the government’s school feeding program, For this reason we have come up with the idea of The Porridge Project which provides the school students with porridge for lunch every day.
For every guest who stays with us we donate KES 200 from our en suite rooms, KES 100 from our standard room and KES 50 from camping and children between 3-12yrs per night which goes into sustaining the running of our porridge project and other development projects at ololamutia primary School.
We work together with the headmaster on development projects including classroom repairs, fencing and our current on-going project is to build a new school kitchen and store which will eventually be expanded to create a dining area for the students.
