First and foremost I take this opportunity to thank all who have enabled us to purchase land and build the two classrooms and the two workshops.  These classrooms and workshops will serve dressmaking and tailoring, carpentry, computer and hairdressing students. These are the four training skills we will be starting with. The students are from the community and others will be from the children home.

In our communities most rarely join high school and its not because they dont want but they cant afford to pay school fees. This has seen many of them wasted and end up involving themselves in bad habbits that affect the whole community. We have several cases of early pregnancies in girls and this has also seen most of their lives wasted and are not unable to even take care of their children. We believe that if we can offer the skills to all these vulnerable youth, their lives will change for better. They will be able to start their own small businesses and even get employed. As Tumaini polytechnic is growing we will also have job opportunities for them will make a huge difference in their lives.

We could not have achieved this facility without our donors, they have shown their commitment and and sacrifice which we highly appreciate. Tumaini family is expanding and many lives are changing for better. We believe we have all united to change the world for better and thank you so much for being part of this wonderful family.

We still have a lot to do on the land, building more classrooms and workshops, boarding facilities, staff houses and library. It is in this regard that I would like to encourage you to continue sharing with others about Tumaini. Through this our network will grow and this will be achieved. Please take your time to share About Tumaini on your social pages, churches and clubs to expand our donor family.

Feel free to communicate back, comment and ask any questions. Thank you
