Tumaini Miles of Smiles Centre

Our mission is to advocate for the underprivileged children and women, release them from their economic, social and physical poverty and enable them to become responsible and fulfilled people in the society. Tumaini Miles of Smiles Centre was founded in 2004 after seeing the need in the rural areas especially in the lives of the orphans, vulnerable children and poor families. Rural areas are areas that rarely benefit from large international organisation as they are not easily accessed and this has left many children and women to suffer with no hope. It is in this regard that Tumaini was founded to be a light in the lives of the needy in rural areas.

THANK YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!

We love you all
We love you all

This is another time of the year for Tumaini Family to thank you for your support and effort in improving the lives of the youth. YOU have made a wonderful family out of your efforts and this has not only changed the lives of the youth but has given our community a new face.  This has contributed to a safe environment for the members of the community. 

YOUR first students who have been in the institution for two years have just completed their exams, some in grade test and others in artisan.  This group of students is now seeing life from a different perspective due to the exposure from their job attachments with different companies. YOU gave them an opportunity not only to get skills but to go out and know they can also work and earn a living.  Our second group is preparing for their exams next year and in January we will be admitting the third group of students in this institution. We have two new workshops that were constructed this year and YOUR students have enough room for their practical activities.

Once again we thank you for your efforts and support towards the youth through the trade school. YOU have not only changed the lives of the youth but you have changed the entire community. The members of the community can feel the safe environment because the youth are busy studying and have no business with things that can ruin their lives.

We remind you to spread the word about the good work you are doing in Malava Kenya. Let others come and join YOU in this cause and together we will change the world.

On behalf of the Tumaini Family and the entire community we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous Happy New Year!

APPRECIATION

Our students graduating high school

As we approach the end of the year we take this opportunity to appreciate you all. When we created this page we were fundraising for our first group that was joining high school by that time.  We had 24 students who were joining by that time and we had no school fees.  I just want to COMPLIMENT YOU ALL for your donations that enabled us to have this page on global giving also enabled us to pay school fees for all the 24 students who had passed well in their national primary exam.

The GOOD NEWS is that YOUR very first students that you donated for are now graduating! They have all successfully completed their high school education and we are looking forward to sending them off to university next year.

YOU made these children to stay in school by paying their fees

YOU provided for their school supplies, toiletries and other basic needs

YOU have always encouraged them through your letters and some of you have encouraged them one on one

YOU provided everything for our girls and we didn’t have any early pregnancies or dropout

As we start our Christmas celebration please consider to participate in the donation  matching on global giving.

JUST 25 DAYS TO NATIONAL EXAMS!

The end of the year is here again and your eighth grade children are preparing for their national exams. There are smiles all over their faces as they are graduating and getting ready for high school.  It is always a big transition for them but the good thing is that YOU have prepared them well by providing quality education that will see them pass their exams!  They have proved that through their pre tests exams, tumaini school has been the 1st position twice out of 132 schools. Two pupils have been the best in mathematics in all the tests.

As many pupils worry on the performance and where they will join, YOUR children are looking forward to high scores and joining good high schools in the country. This wouldn’t be so without YOU, all the high expectation in YOUR children’s education life is because of YOU!  YOU have made all these happen, YOU have made their lives shine just like other children who have parents and families. YOU have given them whatever any child would need to be a better person.

We have 26 candidates this year and the exam starts on the 1st November. They are well prepared and looking forward to this day.  YOU have provided reading materials, text books, tuition and meals.  The environment is conducive for learning and all is because of YOU. YOUR monthly support has made a big difference in the lives of the children and the community in general.
