Olive & Annie supports Zawadi la Tumaini Children's Home through every purchase. Zawadi la Tumaini translates to gift of hope in English. The home provides quality education, a nutritious diet, full medical care, love and support to 27 orphaned and abandoned children.
The children come from backgrounds of abuse, abandonment, or are total orphans. Zawadi la Tumaini believes in quality family-based care. The children are cared for within this loving family until graduating from a post-secondary institution. After graduation the ZLT team assists with finding job placements, editing CV's, and provides financial assistance for one year following graduation. Our goal in supporting Zawadi la Tumaini is to aid these children in reaching their full potential.
Many of the children have suffered from physical abuse or sexual abuse before joining the Zawadi la Tumaini family. The result in most cases is PTSD, severe anxiety, or serious disconnect upon entering the home. Through being welcomed into the Zawadi la Tumaini family the children have received counselling, proper education, care and support. They have been provided with alternative therapies such as yoga, art and creative projects, and musical therapy. Through the counselling services provided through Zawadi la Tumaini staff and volunteers the children have hope for the future. All have been successfully rehabilitated and continue to receive care specific to the mental health struggles they face.
Olive & Annie assists Zawadi la Tumaini Children's Home with financial assistance for education, medical care, and support services for the children.
