"I brought pencils and pens to..." Africa Local Custom Tip by tampa_shawn
Africa Local Customs: 97 reviews and 215 photos
I brought pencils and pens to give out to the school children so they can continue with their studies. Be aware when you do this in real poor locations this can cause quite a riot. Giving them out only at the schools and through the car window and this seemed to work best and be the safest.
The children really need the basics so bring what you can from home and give them away.
I also brought a big stack of t-shirts that I did not need and gave them away once I had tired of them. Shirts with sayings - especially american schools, sports teams etc seemed to be the favorite.
