We are American Christians helping Kenyan Christians to help themselves.


The operations of the Tumaini Village and School are closely monitored by an individual from Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Houston. Training and encouragement are given to the Kenyan staff as needed.



Daily operations at the orphanage and school are carried out totally by Kenyans .The Director, house parents, and teachers at the Tumaini School are all Christians. The sixty seven orphans living in the Tumaini Village are from eight different Kenyan  tribes.



Our sponsors are all Americans Christians with strong testimonies of faith in Christ. Because we hope that our children develop a personal relationship with their sponsors, all our sponsorships are on a one sponsor-to-one-child basis. Both sponsors and children exchange frequent emails to help that relationship develop. Additionally sponsors are invited to join one of the two trips made each year to Kenya to visit the children.
