LOCAL INITIATIVE

The orphanage was founded in 2015 by children’s lawyer Gilbert Djofin and is part of the project “All children to school ! ”.

There are about thirty children in the house, taken out of the voodoo convent by Gilbert, who have no parents or other family to return to. It is a small scale commune, run by papa Gilbert and mamas Antoinette, Francoise and Melanie. The orphanage is in a village , there is also the school the children attend. Gilbert lives permanently with “his” children. The women work on a voluntary basis. Since they also stayed in a voodoo convent as a child, they are quite willing to contribute to Gilbert’s work and the future of the children.
