The Democratic Republic of the Congo

TFI’s work in the DRC began in 2021 when we agreed to assist one of our Board Members Jilma Meneses to bring the Kaziba Orphanage into our programmatic work. She had previously supported them for 20 years through her own nonprofit organization, and we are honored she has trusted us with its care going forward.

Kaziba houses anywhere from 40 to 60 children under eight years old who come from families affected by war and poverty in the DRC, and provides them with food, medical care, and a safe place to live until they can either be adopted into new families or by an existing family member who may be able to give them a more secure home. TFI looks forward to helping these vulnerable children, and hopefully beginning to provide them with more tools to thrive as they grow, such as expanding their access to education and a more meaningful future.
