Orange Babies need nappies
Orange Babies has supported several projects since 2006 with money received from its mother organisation in the Netherlands. The local arm of the organisation was registered recently with the Ministry of Health and Social Services.
The projects running this year are the Dinner of Hope which will be held during August, a bicycle tour by cyclists from the Netherlands and a Gala Dinner and Fashion Show on 05 October. On 01 December the organisation will host a Bounce for Orange Babies Funfest, where companies enter teams to participate in the bounce.
The main focus of the organisation is to provide vulnerable children access to quality life by caring for HIV positive mothers and their children as well as orphans and vulnerable children. The project aims to raise money locally to sustain current welfare projects in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Okahandja as well as implement new projects countrywide.
Orange Babies Namibia is managed by a board of trustees and full time staff.
Until now, all projects were funded by Orange Babies Amsterdam with funds generated through fashion shows, art exhibitions and gala events. These funds help HIV positive women and children in Africa. Orange Babies Amsterdam supports several projects managed by Orange Babies Namibia such as Ehalelo Koo Meme, Ileni Tulikwafeni and the Hope Village.
