Sofia Luna Azzola Foundation & Gold Zanzibar social commitment 

The Sofia Luna Azzola Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 by the Azzola family, owner of Gold Zanzibar Beach House & Spa resort in Kendwa, in the north of the island. 

Our love for the beautiful island of Zanzibar and its people has led the founding members to create the Foundation the aim of providing different opportunities to with improve the life of the local communities of the village of Kendwa and support other realities of discomfort on the island. 

The head of the Foundation is Francesca Micheli who, with passion and dedication, interacts relations with the local community, planning the necessary interventions and making efforts to raise funds. Every single dollar donated is destined entirely to the projects, all the other costs (office, transfers, bureaucracy …) are to be paid by the members of the Foundation. 

Francesca organizes visits to the village, the hospital and the school of Kendwa to introduce Guests to the African reality outside the resort’s luxury. 

All this is possible thanks to the support and generosity of our Guests, partners or simple supporters, without forgetting the help of the Azzola family, the work of Francesca and the collaboration of the whole staff of Gold!
