A few information about
The Pippi House Foundation was founded in 2011 by Aristides Nshange, who saw a great need to care for homeless girls and young women and their children. The foundation runs a women’s shelter, where more than 50 girls and women between the ages of twelve and twenty-six are being taken care of together with their children. They are all given the opportunity to attend school or to get an education depending on their age. The girls and women came to the shelter to escape poverty, homelessness and other dangerous living conditions. Many of the inhabitants were forced to marry and/or are victims of human trafficking, domestic violence, and physical and/or sexual abuse. All girls and young mothers can get medical assistance, counselling, and advocacy. The hope is that all girl go to school, finish their education, and start vocational training as tailor or hair dresser to support the Pippi House itself in their own workshop and saloon or learn any other profession to be able to make a living.
