What we've done

Explore our projects and lets all join hands to make the world a better place for people with Albinism.

For the love of kids

We had a generous donation of kids toys and clothing from a Turkish friend of Cheliva, she had a wish of making kids with albinism smile and be joyful during the festive season.  She donated toys; clothing; colouring books and story books  for kids aged 0 - 12 yrs, so we created a fun day for them wereby we arranged games and activities for them and invited the Turkish ambassedor H.E Dr. Mehmet Gulluoglu to join in. He brought turkish soccer jersies and a ball that led into a soccer match and laughter and more fun from the kids.

Every kids love language is simply fun and games, we too love games and believe learning begins at the playground, every donation counts and we make sure it reaches the intended goal.

International Albinism Awareness Day 2022

International Albinism Awareness Day is celebrated annually on June 13 to celebrate the human rights of persons with albinism worldwide.  This years theme is our voices will be heard and as Cheliva Foundation we planned on making sure their voices were heard; on this day we had a dialoge at JNICC where we had 4 Panelists: Dr Isaac Maro MD, MPH, PHD, a senior Medical Correspondant Afya Check media programs; Mr Noel Mtafya Former UDSM student president and youth advocate; Mr Vilali Maembe a chanjo music artist and honorable Diana Chande AU - Youth Ambassador for peace on eastern regional zone as our guest of honor. 

Each panelist shared their experiences and views on what they had in mind for people with albinism and the attendees got comfortable and asked questions creating debates and heated discussions throughout the event. One of our biggest achievements on this day was realising that because this community is termed "disabled" they struggle in moving forward as society has given them reason to be dependent.  Disability is a disadvantage or handicap and albinism is a congenital absence of pigment in the skin and hair (which are white) and the eyes (which are usually pink), therefore is albinism really a disability or just a condition?

During the cause of the day we managed to discuss the varies challenges and solutions surrounding albinism and through that strategies and plans where formulated on the way forward for future development, the work ahead is not easy but the unity seems promising.

We were sponsored by JNICC, ATSOKO, Pepsi, and Hill Water

International Albinism Awareness Day 2021

International Albinism Awareness Day is celebrated annually on June 13 to celebrate the human rights of persons with albinism worldwide. The theme this year is still standing strong and we joined Tanzania Albinism Society in the annual exhibition. At our booth we had Hats sponsored by Utu Kwanza as well as clothing, and shoes, on the final day of the exhibition we had the honor of being joined by the former Turkish ambassador Honorable Ali Davutoglu and wife who brought presents to everyone that visited our booth.

It was an eye opener as we collaborated with Standing Voice there and then to ensure that after treatment they come straight to our booth for consultations and gifts, the events guest of honor Honorable Ummy Nderiananga deputy minister primisters office (Parliamentary; Policy and Coodination) visited our booth and we handed her a hat as a symbol for our appreciation for the hard work she has done, we had further conversations concerning our needs, fears and hopes as people with albinism.

Every year is a step forward and we believe in small steps that make a huge impact
