MATERIAL DONATIONS

We now have an Amazon wishlist! Click here

Shipping address: 1019 23rd. St., Port Townsend, WA 98368  USA

Our current needs:

High priority:

  • Children's books in French, all levels - We have a great need for this

  • Children's books in English, all levels

  • Fun toys for kids! Examples: Movie action figures, sensory toys like putty slime and squishy balls, building toys, toy vehicles, action toys that spin, light up, or move. Most of our kiddos are very young (3-4 years old), so toys within this age group would be best.

  • "Advanced toys": Puzzles, board games and other turn-taking games (great for building social skills), pretend play toys such as toy people, food, or animals.

  • We would love some LEGOs!

  • Large items like easels, a white board, stationary bicycle, sensory tent, mats or foam shapes, yoga balls, a swing, etc

Additionally: 

  • Basic office supplies (pens, post-its, paper, etc. We go through large amounts of hot laminator sheets and printer paper)

  • Art supplies: Glue, crayons, markers, nontoxic washable paint, brushes, construction paper, beads, etc.

  • We currently have a good backstock of these items thanks to Develop Africa's efforts last year (thanks a million!), though more would never hurt.

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF SENEGAL AND WANT TO DONATE VIA OR OUTSIDE OUR WISHLIST, PLEASE CONTACT US FOR HOW TO GET YOUR MATERIALS TO DAKAR. We will have you ship your items to a specific U.S. address. This address changes depending on who is coming to Dakar next.
