Tumaini Children’s Home, Kenya
The Tumaini Children’s Ministry in Nyeri, Kenya began in 1997 when a few children were fed by the church while they resided in their own homes or on the streets. In 2003, the Home opened its doors to resident children. Today, the Ministry is home to 200+ children in primary and secondary school including some who are handicapped and can not attend school. The Tumaini Ministry also includes Sugarbaker Clinic which tends to the children’s medical needs. In addition, the clinic serves the local community’s medical needs at subsidized fees however, the very needy are treated at no cost. The Ministry has a tailoring department which produces school uniforms for the children as well as other clothes and items for sale. The Computer department offers skills to older children while outsiders pay a little fee.
While some talented youth have completed high school and are pursuing university or vocational type training at several institutions of higher learning, and have become an inspiration to others, the majority of the graduates are unable to find jobs or become self-employed due to practical skills or opportunities. Because of this, a Vocational Center is now being built with funds donated to the organization and should be completed within the year.
In 2017, a small group from our congregation and Laguna Presbyterian Church went to Kenya to visit the home and many of the children that we sponsor. It was an amazing and uplifting experience for all of those who travelled with us. The children were all forthcoming and excited to see us. We are all looking forward to going back sometime in the future.
