Under the

Avocado Tree

Raphael Etenyi founded Hamomi in 1999, taking 7 kids under his wing, teaching them in the shade of an avocado tree. 4 of them were without homes, so he found guardians from within the community.

From 7 kids under a tree, a school grew. From there grew a passionate staff, a network of support and a bigger concept. In 2007, Hamomi-USA launched to take on Raphael's long term vision. The model created under a tree with so few resources remains our backbone.
