It Takes A Village Africa Donations

$20,000 goal

Campaign created 11 months ago
Welcome to ITAVA's GoFundMe page! ITAVA was founded by Fatu Kollie in 2009, just a few years after coming to the United States as a refugee. She knew no English, but she was able to attend school. Many others in her position are not so lucky, and this is what made Fatu so passionate about helping her fellow Guineans.

Today, supported by her own family funds and funds from friends and well-wishers, ITAVA operates as a residential for 26 orphans found on the streets

, and those with no one to care for them. They are housed in a secure and safe environment where they are fed, provided for, and educated. A support staff of 4 tend to the needs of these children and the facility operates, 24/7, 365 days a year.

These children, aged between 2 and 14 years, need your support in every way that matters. From shoes to writing materials to books to play toys. We also need to purchase computers to support their education.

Our objective is to raise $20,000 in the next two months in order to maintain our operating budget for the next years. Our short-term objective is to provide a wonderful Ramadan party for these children and take them out to the city - a short holiday from the remote village where they spend nearly all their time.

Please, donate generously using our Paypal and other accounts. Nothing is ever too small, nor too big. The children appreciate it.
