Kim is Heading to America!

This fall, Kim Saville, our Director of International Relations, returns to the States to share remarkable stories of our students and the school with as many supporters as possible.

Having been a Director at the school, Kim has worked alongside Founder, Gemma Sisia, since the early days and has great stories of our school’s growth and development. She would love to share them with as many people as possible. As an experienced and passionate speaker, Kim would make a wonderful addition to your Rotary Club meeting, workplace gathering, school function or special event.

Do you know of an American event in October or November that could benefit from an inspiring guest speaker? Would you like to organize an event during which Kim can share one of the good news stories from Africa this year?

Email us as soon as possible to ensure you are part of her coast-to-coast itinerary!

To make sure parcels arrive and incur no expenses for the school

  • Please do NOT register or insure any mail as it costs the school at least USD $25 in taxes at our end.
  • Mark all parcels as being “second-hand goods” or “personal gifts”.
  • Ensure the description of goods written on the parcel matches the actual items inside as customs and postal staff frequently inspect contents of parcels.
  • Please label all parcels clearly with the first and last name of the recipient and your full name.
  • Please put the value of the package at no more than US$10 (the lower the better).
  • Ensure that your parcel is LESS THAN 2KG. We have been advised that parcels less than 2KG are technically tax-free regardless of content, but this is not guaranteed by all postal workers.
 

Tax-free items include books, personal goods and anything that is not new. Used goods, used clothes, etc…(please remove labels and packaging from all items before sending them)

Keep in mind that parcels sent by airmail can take up to four months to get here (sea mail is even longer – often 12+ months!), so don’t worry if it takes a while for us to let you know the parcel has arrived.
