Our History

The idea for the Tumaini Orphanage came as a result of certain of our church members having worked with other orphanages in Kenya and elsewhere. We saw what appeared to work in raising children in Africa and what did not.

In mid-2007 the leadership of Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Houston, Texas allocated funds to build the Tumaini Orphanage from money the Lord had provided the church as a result of a series of real estate transactions. Approximately 14 acres of land were acquired in western Kenya near the town of Soy and construction began in 2008. In 2009 we began accepting orphaned children and dedicated ourselves to raising the next generation of Christian leaders for Kenya and Africa.
