Colouring pencils and Pads

Last visit I took some of these to the kids at the Synagogue in Mellah...Are they more deserved (for want of a better word, perhaps I mean needed) anywhere else? :)

On this trip I am not visiting the Atlas Mountains, though I did take supplies to the berber villagers last time I went :)

Any other suggestions? :)

Orphanages/childrens' charities such as Atfalouna and Espoir. Second hand kids' clothing in good nick is also welcomed. Very good of you to think of the less fortunate.

A little Food for Thought on this topic:

1.Its better to give to an organisation than hand to kids during a tour - this promotes a handout/dependency culture and makes passers-by into beggars. See the thinkchildsafe website as well for info on how to be a responsible tourist and not give hand outs to street kids.

2. Its better to buy local and support the local economy than uncut it and bring in free stuff from abroad.
