In the slums of Addis Ababa, twins face a real struggle to survive. Often, Gemini families just do not have enough food. In this every day battle for survival, death of the babies is all too frequent. One in three may die before their 1st birthday . Gemini provides support, hope and dignity to these struggling families.
25 years ago, Gemini was launched as a local non-governmental organization, from an old shipping container in a corner of Black Lion Hospital, Addis Ababa. With a focus on an especially high risk group of the urban poor – those with twins, today Gemini is a successful NGO providing a comprehensive family approach to foster better livelihoods to some of Addis Ababa’s poorest people.
