    We pack & sort all the donations into a shipping container. Once it is full, it's off to Papua New Guinea.

  • Head to Papua New Guinea
    We head to the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Sort out the books and get them library ready

  • Build the Library
    We then head to a school in Papua New Guinea and ill the shelves with the books and turn the library into a child-friendly learning space with colour, posters, games etc.

We know that during COVID-19, a lot of folks around the city and state are feeling uneasy about the future - we’re not sure what the future holds either.

That said: we know that we love making sure you have the gear you need for your adventures, and we’re going to keep doing that - with our team - until the city tells us we can’t.

But as long as folks like yourself support small businesses around the city, then we’ll be here — every day, making sure your orders arrive on time.

Ripinka School Library

We took this school library from an empty room to a full functioning, child friendly library. Most of the kids at this school had never seen a book before. All the books, tables, chairs and posters are old New Zealand school resources fully repurposed to give these kids an education.
