Send a Needy Child to High School in Rural Kenya



As you know there is nothing more valuable in life as education. Tumaini Miles of Smiles Centre not only houses, feeds, clothes the orphans, abandoned and the poor, but goes deeper to provide quality education to enable them to become whole people in the society. Currently we are educating 300 children, Baby class - class 8 and 18 are joining high school this year. Our goal is to empower and equip these children to break the cycle of poverty. Get involved and lets experience the change together!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Poverty, illiteracy and unemployment in rural Western Kenya has led many people into prostitution, brewing and selling of local illicit brews to make a living. This has also caused non-functional families and high spread of HIV/AIDS, hence many children have been left orphaned, neglected and vulnerable. To break this vicious cycle of poverty, we are empowering the children through education and skills, envisioning that they will in future become part of a larger solution for their community.

How will this project solve this problem?

Tumaini Miles of Smiles provides quality education through primary school to the orphaned and children from very poor families. Most children cannot afford to continue their education through high school. The Tumaini High School Fund will give many children an opportunity to continue their education. Donors can make monthly contributions to cover the costs for one child's education or make a contribution to the general fund.

Potential Long Term Impact

Ensuring the high school education of a child will have an invaluable impact on their life, family and community and will help to break the cycle of poverty. The Fund will allow the 600 children in Tumaini's primary school to continue their education in high school, so they may become self-reliant adults contributing to the community.
