Description

During my first trip to Zanzibar, I met Rossana Rondelli, who in 2016 had founded the association “Amici di Zanzibar e del Mondo Onlus”, based in Italy.

The association was born with the aim of supporting humanitarian projects and international solidarity initiatives, with a particular attention for island of Zanzibar and Tanzania.
When I met Rossana, she was involved in an initiative aimed at the youngest children of Zanzibar, with the aim of removing them from the street and build a free Nursery School for them, ensuring a salary for teachers and all the necessary equipment for school activities. Today the project is still active and actively finances the nursery.

This year the association has set a new goal: extending the project to the kindergarten, building a new structure specifically designed to accommodate children who finish the kindergarten, thus ensuring a lasting schooling path.

I promised Rossana that I would do everything possible to help her find the necessary funds to create this new school. So I decided to donate 130 school uniforms for the children and to raise funds for the construction work. Until the end of the year, in fact, my customers in the salon will be able to buy a water bottle at the price of 12 €. The proceeds will be donated to the project.

The support and participation of my clients in this initiative has been surprising! I received a donation of 100 cases and 200 notebooks and pencils for children.
All the material will be brought personally to Zanzibar by Rossana Rondelli.

Anyone wishing to support this initiative, can make a donation using the IBAN indicated on the website of the association: https://amicidizanzibaredelmondoonlus.jimdo.com/
