Our Children

  • George Geofrey
    Tumaini has housed or assisted approximately 87 children since it began in April of 2006. The children and their stories that you see in this album are the ones being cared for currently on-site. Enjoy meeting our children!

Our Staff

  • Deborah Charles
    The Tumaini staff, at present, consists of 19 people. 1 Manager, 2 Manager Helpers, 1 Nurse, 1 Head Caregiver, 7 Caregivers, 2 Laundress, 2 Cooks, 1 Maintenance worker, and 2 Security Guards.

Our School Pictures

  • Juma
    The children started school at Greenview English Medium School in January 2011. Out of our 50 children: 4 remained at home, 10 were brand new to school and the remaining 36 had attended public school previously. All the children currently in Standards 1, 2 & 3 have all had to drop back to a lower grade and many in Prep 2 as well. This is necessary because all the instruction is done in English and the children are learning this new language as they go. The remediation, though tough, is necessary so that they can all have a good foundation for the future.

Our Building Projects

  • Main House Dining Area
    In January of 2011, we were able to begin some long-awaited building and expansion projects for the orphanage. We are hopeful this will be just the beginning of improvements that need to be made. We thank the Lord for His good provision for us.

Soooooooooooo do you eat this with them? LOL I think I would be filling up at lunch as I like rice and beans. ;) I'm sure they are different than what we have as rice and beans though.

can't go wrong with rice and beans, huh? :) i fall back on those and think of kara. but i am VERY jealous of your mangos.... you can't find good mangos here. it's just impossible.


Leslie - I do eat the rice and beans with them on Tuesday and Thursday. Those are the only whole days I'm there. I could eat breakfast with them too but I'd rather wait for lunch. I don't know that I ever ate rice and beans at home - so I can't tell you how alike or different they are. I just know they are pretty good and pretty filling.
Christina - I agree, the mangos are really good. I still am perfecting my "art" of cutting them up though. I just don't have the nack!
