Slabb, Inc., through The Laughter of a Child Foundation supports the work of the Watoto Kicheko, an orphanage and baby home in Arusha, Tanzania. Watoto Kicheko has been set up to help local children who have special needs that cannot adequately be met in their communities. The Center provides a haven for Tanzanian children by working closely with the local authority and communities. They provide schooling, healthcare, a caring home life, love and security for these most vulnerable of children. Over the past two years many of their children have returned to their communities. However, they continue to receive children who need their care.
