Slabb, Inc., through The Laughter of a Child Foundation has supported the work of Watoto Kicheko, an orphanage and baby home in Arusha, Tanzania since 2014. The orphanage has cared for over 30 children during that time.
However, the majority of those children have either been reunited with their families, or have been adopted. This process will be completed by the end of June 2018 after which, they will no longer admit any more children. We, along with Watoto Kicheko, look forward to a time when all Tanzanian children will be brought up in a family.
Watoto Kicheko – the charity and foundation, will continue, and we are excited to support their future projects, which they will announce in the coming months.
