We would love to use extra monetary gifts that you donate for specific gifts for your student. Please email us to arrange this and we are happy to send pictures back of your student with their gifts.
However, due to the need for financial accountability, money exchange, and safety, it is our policy that all gifts be sent via Yaaka Afrika.
One of the easiest ways to provide additional gifts is to send a Care Package. This is when you donate some money (typically $30-$50) and we then interview the student to determine what their needs are.
To send a Care Package you can login to your online account, click on “My Profile > My Sponsorships”. Then click “Send A Gift” by your students name. This will allow items to be bought locally by our staff. This helps provide for the students immediate needs.
