They often feel abandoned. But since yesterday, this feeling has changed for them. This was the case for orphans of Ngul Zamba orphanage, home and school for blind, visually impaired and abandoned children Colonel Daniel de Roufignac, and those of la Maison des Enfants. All received donations of school and food supplies just to name a few.
It was a warm gesture from the Talla Foundation, set up by architect and designer Franklin Talla. This was the first outing for the newly formed foundation. “These children do not always have access to education or health care, among other things, because of a lack of resources. So we have to be able to help them. And through the foundation, we can have partners who can support us, as well as provide better help throughout the year. Something that seems more difficult when it’s a private individual doing it, because Africa Builder, for example, doesn’t have enough resources,” explains Franklin Talla.
It is a move that fits in with the vision of the promoter of the architecture firm Africa Builders: “We are in the construction business, where we create living spaces. Beyond the infrastructure aspect, we are also in the social field to help build a better life for these children. Our aim with the foundation is to be of help to the lower classes who do not really have the resources. So we want to offer this kind of solution that will help improve the living conditions of many orphanages,” explains the architect and designer, who studied in France-Paris.
This initiative is part of the celebration of the fifth anniversary of Africa Builders, an architectural and interior design company founded in 2018. It has made a name for itself with its green building project. The aim is to construct completely eco-friendly, water-saving buildings.
