Tumaini, The Environmental Academy of Hope

It has been nearly 7 months since Tumaini officially opened its doors in early 2019, and we have already doubled in size to accomodate over forty students! Thanks to your support, our students have uniforms, daily meals, and school supplies. We have also been able to fund a van for transport of the students from the remote areas of the community to and from school.

We are planning to build another classroom and a dining hall for the students this year, and hope to raise funds for an additional van.  

 

The community is very excited to share in this endeavor, with wonderful teachers and supportive parents.  

 

This initiative is helping the next generation of leaders to foster respect, appreciation, and guardianship of the planet and its natural resources.   

 

We are so grateful for your support!

Elephant Dung Paper

Silent Heroes recently provided scholarship funding for 8 participants of the Amboseli community to train in making elephant dung paper, as an ecotourism resource to strengthen the human-animal elephant bond in the region. 

Participants traveled to Mwaluganje Elephant Sanctuary on the coast of Kenya, where they trained in all aspects of the paper-making process. 

The participants aim to introduce this skill to their local community, and will begin an elephant dung paper initiative later this year. is a community-owned sanctuary found in Mwachinga Village, Kinango constituency, Kwale County. The village comprises two main tribes: Adigo, who are farmers; and Aduruma, who are pastoralists. 

We look forward to keeping you posted, and will let you know when the paper products will be ready for purchase.  Stay tuned, and much gratitude for your support!
