Why right now is the best time to give:

-Immediate food aid
-Basic medical intervention, connection to further care
-School equipment & materials for mobile classrooms
-Mobility-enhancing devices such as crutches, wheelchairs, hand-crank tricycles and other supports
-Rental of building for Tiki Yiki center in Ziniare, equipped with classroom necessities and retrofit as feasible for accessibility
-Delivery of remedial middle-school level classes and preschool activities, to occur at Tiki Yiki center and via mobile education
-Delivery of training in prevention of common diseases such as malaria and cholera, promotion of health & wellness
What’s next for Tiki Yiki?
Tiki Yiki hopes to achieve non-profit accreditation in 2018. Gaby is currently doing his best with meager resources available-more financial support will allow him to expand operations and serve more children.
Next steps include creation of a sustainable food program, development of a skills-to-work program; and educational exchanges with schools in other countries.
Over the next 6-8 months, funding will provide Gaby the stability to train staff, develop programs, and seek community partners.
