Material Donations

The Time + Tide Foundation encourages donation of items that are reusable and that can easily be shared or enjoyed by multiple children.

All of the schools with which we work have a constant need for supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, maps, calculators, and wall charts. Additionally, one of the best items to bring is age and language appropriate educational and story books.

We also provide the students in our female empowerment programme with sanitary pads that are made locally in the South Luangwa, Zambia, and we equip schools with disposable sanitary pads and wipes. We always have a need for feminine hygiene donations. If you don’t have the space to pack these items in your suitcase, you can purchase the reusable pads in Zambia and donate them to the Foundation during your stay.

Due to the logistics of international shipping, customs and clearance, we discourage sending material donations as the cost of import often exceeds the value of donated items.
