History of Tabarak Orphanage

  • Print

Tabarak Children's Home was registered in 2004 as Tabarak Muslim Orphan’s and Widows Support Project.

In August of 2005, a group of 26 women in Kisauni established an orphanage in a rented house within Kisauni village. The orphans were then numbered 24; 6 girls and 18 boys. The orphanage unfortunately almost went under after six months of its inception when well-wishers were unable to meet the expenses of maintaining the children’s home.

In February 2006, one of the founding women and current trustee Mrs. Aisha Pili Ramadhan and her husband Mr. Ahmed Ali decided to welcome the orphans in their home and with the help of well-wishers, were able to find rented accommodation, clothing, food and other necessities.

By August 2007, the orphanage had received assistance from well-wishers enough to buy a small piece of land in the village and construct a children’s home with four small dormitories, an open dining hall kitchen and a matron’s room and office.
