Pack for a Purpose

The Art of Giving

Small Space. Little Effort. Big Impact.


We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for schools or medical clinics in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families, including the students of the Royal Chundu Foundation School - children of our staff members and neighbouring villages.
