 Camels give 8 times more milk than a cow, a 25 kilo bag of Unimix that will feed one child breakfast every day for a whole year, or maybe a desk, mosquito net or set of reading books. And this year you can choose a student to sponsor through high school at one fortieth of the cost in NY.





Volunteers are donating their time and energy for the event.


Items made by the tribes are on display and for sale.
