Hadassa Imani is derived from Hebrew and Swahili. Hadassa points to the blossoming Mirt, Isaiah 55:13: “For a Thistle, an Mirt will go up” by drawing to the youngsters from the slums, despised by all but by proper guidance and care based on Biblical values ​​and norms, they will flourish like a Mirt. Imani means Faithfulness, something that both young people and their supervisors need.
