Who we are
Twins International is an Italian private Onlus association, apolitical and irreligious, which works in Africa. Since 2007 it has been developing Alice for Children’s projects in Kenya to support especially distressed and vulnerable childhood. We support about 2,500 orphans and we operate in Nairobi’s slums and in the rural area of Rombo, at Kilimanjaro’s slopes.
OUR ASSOCIATION’S VISION
Each and every child has the right to grow up as a healthy and educated person, to be treated and loved within his or her community and in an environment that should be as familiar as possible.
Alice for Children’s projects work in Africa in order to start programs which guarantee a right nutrition and to give more and more orphans the opportunity to enter schools, to have a high-quality education, to attend vocational and university courses. We pay a special attention to the fight against AIDS/HIV; in particular, we guarantee medical assistance to all people who benefit from our projects. We try to make women’s voice heard, in order to claim for their right to equality, which is too often denied in developing countries like Kenya.
Twins International Onlus works thanks to a structure that is as simple as possible, having the smallest number of employees and groups of volunteers who help both in Africa and in Italy. Our association’s management’s costs are lower than 15-20% of raised funds and can give directly 80-85% of them to projects.
