The Valentine Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the lifelong care of at-risk orphans in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

The non-profit was started by Joni, her late husband, Rick Vanderslice and other like-minded individuals in 2008. Our doors officially opened to welcome 19 incredible children in 2013. In the last decade, we have grown in numbers and size, but the heart has remained the same- to serve the most vulnerable and at risk in Tanzania.

The project is carried on today by a board of trustees heavily integrated into the J Banks family. Our company supports the Valentine project financially and directly through various retail fundraisers and sales, the sale of our Kravet fabric line- and regular donations and outreach.

We welcome all of you to visit the Valentine Project website for more information on our mission.
