Sister Island s a Charity project born on the island of Zanzibar from the efforts of two friends, Rossana Sareni and Francesca Micheli.
They run a kindergarten located north of the island of Zanzibar, in the village of Nungwi, in a poorly developed rural area, characterized by several pockets of poverty.
The kindergarten hosts 72 children aged 3 to 6 daily and free of charge, selected in coordination with the head of the village (Sheha) among the families suffering from greater economic hardship.
The hosted children have an age range among ones with the greater school dropout in the Zanzibari territory, as there are no state schools that deal with early childhood.
For this reason, and without forgetting the fundamental factor of being free, the existence of a structure dedicated to children makes Sister Island a unique project of its kind.
