Mitumba Used Goods Collection 2018

TRLF Pte Ltd supports projects of the Tana River Life Foundation (TRLF), a Kenyan registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) (Reg:OP218/051/2007/0440/4836). TRLF works towards the integral development of local communities in the Tana Delta of Kenya.

TRLF has been running the Mitumba (or “recycled goods” in Kiswahili) Project where specific used items that are in very good condition are collected, sorted and shipped to the Tana Delta in Kenya. Furniture and equipment go towards the educational projects run by TRLF, while clothes, shoes and bags provide a group of women with school going children the opportunity to earn additional household income through the sale of these items. Shipment costs have been underwritten by PIL Singapore Pte Ltd since 2015.

In 2017, more than 10 public primary and secondary schools all across the Tana Delta as well as over 60 households in Tana Delta benefited from this project.
TRLF Pte Ltd invites friends wishing to support the community development projects of TRLF to donate goods as listed in the attached REQUEST LIST
