Our Mission

OUR MISSION

Thousands of African youth have died while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea.
Our mission is to help those who have survived the trek.

Violence and political instability have led to an ever-growing population of African youth who’ve fled their homelands in search of safety.

To escape, the majority of migrants entrust their lives to human smuggling rings. These predatory networks promise a safe passage to Europe or countries such as Israel. Very few migrants are able to survive the journey without experiencing torture or rape.

Each cup of Tib Tib tea goes towards providing basic amenities and financial grants to young, African refugees and their families. New arrivals have difficulty become established in civil society. They intend to contribute to their communities but lack adequate access to healthcare, employment, and education.

The migration crisis and human rights abuses cannot be solved overnight. However, the first step in overcoming any challenge is taking the time to learn about it. Check out the work of verified advocacy groups and local organizations (below) to get started.
