The More-Africa Foundation was set up by our own Dutch Ellen Beers. She takes in handicapped children in a school she set up herself in Zanzibar. She offers day care and physiotherapy to these children who normally fall completely between two stools. The love and devotion radiates from it. We were allowed to see and feel that ourselves when we paid a visit. Ellen is refurbishing the site step by step. During the tour we were impressed by the creativity and the energy that is put into it. There is already a beautiful kitchen with a cozy terrace. The pool is under construction. Great addition to the physio exercises. The planted fruit trees provide fresh fruit. There are chickens and ducks. Apartments are being built for the interns.
And there are plans for a beautiful playground, volleyball court, a vegetable garden and a cozy fire pit. The children are picked up daily from their parents and brought home in the afternoon. At school they receive lessons in a playful way and the children who need it receive physiotherapy. In addition to Ellen, there are the interns with a suitable education who help with this.
Sell beach bags
Because we buy the beach bags, we help More Africa. The bags are made from traditional African Kanga fabric and sewn together by a local company. The beach bags are super easy to take with you on vacation. Nice and compact and light, yet strong and handy with the zippers! And also nice: very cheap. We make no profit at all. The more we sell, the more More-Africa can help.
This is the old model beach bag (there is a new model coming):
