I have a friend who goes to Kenya often and since I just sponsored a child in Kenya (who is not on my account, but my moms, we will "share" her :) ) anyways, since I have a friend who goes to Kenya so often if we were to give her a small package for our girl would she be able to mail it to the Kenyan office from Kenya? Or would it require physically taking it to the office?

Hi Kaitlyn! Our main office in Kenya is in Nairobi. Your friend is welcome to take a gift and either drop it off at the country office or mail it in country. However, we strongly discourage mailing because mail carriers in developing countries are often unreliable and we cannot guarantee that your items will be received and delivered. Please email us at socialmedia@compassion.com for more information about dropping off a gift specifically for your child in Kenya.
