Educate an Orphan in Rural Western Kenya



As you know there is nothing as 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?

Hundreds of thousands of families in rural Western Kenya that have lost breadwinners to HIV/AIDS are stuck in systemic poverty cycles where children lack access to healthcare, education, food and shelter. Tumaini fights poverty by empowering these children, through free, quality education, healthcare, and basic needs.

How will this project solve this problem?

The sponsorship program ensures consistent support to enable these orphaned and needy children to go to school, providing school uniforms, materials, stationery, food, and medical care. Our sponsors have an opportunity to communicate with their children directly through letter writing and pictures.

Potential Long Term Impact

We will educate over 100 vulnerable orphans and 300 needy and abandoned children, who cannot afford an education at the primary and secondary level so as to reduce systemic poverty in their families by creating community-focused businesses, jobs, and social institutions.
