We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.

If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.

Santorini Mozambique supports the local Mucoque Primary School in Vilanculos. One of our team members visited a number of schools in the town and we believe that this school was in the most need of support.

We have a dedicated drop off box in our gift shop for guests to donate anything they wish from the list below along with the other projects that we support.

If you would like to be informed when the drop off is done, please leave your contact details with one of our managers.

We try to do drop offs at the school on a bi-weekly basis or whenever the box is getting full.
