Tiyya Foundation is a brand that exists to provide economic and educational opportunities for families of refugees, immigrants, and indigenous communities. Founded by refugees from East Africa, this organization was built on the personal experiences of Owliya Dima and her daughter Meymuna Hussein-Cattan. Their core values of inclusion, kindness, empowerment, and economic advancement drive their mission to help program participants achieve economic mobility and community in the United States.
Since its establishment in 2010, Tiyya Foundation has helped over 1,000 families by providing basic necessities, educational opportunities, and career placement. They have even launched a social enterprise restaurant, Flavors From Afar, in Little Ethiopia during a global pandemic. Despite the challenges, Tiyya Foundation thrives and continuously evolves.
As a team, they believe that those who have survived displacement are the true alchemists who can create life after loss. Their dedication to celebrating the resilience of individuals and changing the narrative is evident in the impactful community development programs they redesign and launch. If you're interested in supporting their work, you can donate, eat at Flavors from Afar, hire from Tiyya Foundation, or become a corporate sponsor.
