The Olasiti Orphanage
A further 39 children from difficult backgrounds are taken in and cared for during the day. Grandmother Theresia takes loving care of all the children as a large family. Through the cooperation with the school close by, it is possible for 31 of the orphans to attend the school classes.
How did the project come about?
During this period she was particularly involved in the Kindergarten of Joy in Tansania. On her journey through Tanzania she discovered the orphanage. She was particularly impressed by the people who work here for the children with a lot of love and passion. After her personal impression on site in Arusha, Andrea decided to support her heart project, the Olasiti Orphanage, further. Andrea not only give children education and a future, but also offer them a safe home in this case.
Meanwhile she gets further support by Christine. Christine was also a volunteer in Tanzania in 2019 and wanted to support the orphans after her voluntary work on site.
