Pack for a Purpose when coming to Onsea House

During their first trip to Africa, Scott and Rebecca Rothney learned that while they were limited to 20kg of luggage on safari, the airline had an allowance of 100 pounds (45 kgs) of checked luggage plus a 40 pound (18.14 kg) carry-on. In making plans for a second trip, they looked into visiting a school near the lodge they would visit. They contacted their safari company to see if they could determine any specific needs of that school. Armed with that information, they were able to deliver 140 pounds (64 kgs) of school supplies, including soccer balls, to the school. It was enormously rewarding to be able to help the people in the community that had given them such a life-changing experience. That’s how the idea for the Pack for a Purpose website came up. 

Onsea House is currently one of the only 11 properties in Tanzania that joined the Pack for a Purpose. With your help, you can make the life better of more than 1400 children of the Baraa Primary School, located within walking distance from Onsea House in Arusha.
