Throughout Frank Mollel’s life growing up in Tanzania, Africa, his family had taken care of local children who had lost their parents, mostly due to AIDS. With over 2.5 million orphans and a quarter of the women are single-family supporters, Frank and his Mama, Sion, were compelled to act and created the Sion Center in 2012.
Their motivation was clear from the start, to invest in the education, care, and economic opportunities for girls and women, concentrating on the local Maasai tribe. The Sion Center was born from their shared vision to create a program that would support local women. The Sion Center Orphanage followed and is a sanctuary for young girls who have been orphaned or abandoned. The Center is their home, where they receive love, nurturing care, and support in a family atmosphere.
