The Victoria Falls Waterfront has joined an innovative community development project called Pack for a Purpose. The project helps travellers ‘give back’ by simply using available luggage space (however big or small) to provide supplies for the communities that they are going to visit on holiday.

As one of the accommodation providers with the project, The Waterfront has chosen to support Siandunda Primary School. The school was built with help from various initiatives and is now supporting in excess of 75 children. 

The children no longer have to trek on average 5km to school as they were doing, but they are still working with very basic supplies. A list of the supplies needed is available on the website to ensure the school and children are receiving goods that are going to prove useful.

Ravenscroft School from North Carolina has been the biggest supporter of Siandunda Primary to date, having sent a large amount of supplies to the school, making a big difference to these children’s lives.
