New Year with new Things

By Rose Bugusu | Director

This is how it has been for our children.
This is how it has been for our children.

The students are doing very well and it was good to see their performance in their first two exams.  The primary school pupils are also doing great and the eighth graders are very busy preparing for their exams. Babies are fine, they are growing so fast and we are grateful that we have not had health issues.

Things have been very tough for us for the last two years, our children didn’t have school shoes and they had to be sent home for that reason. This year has been a blessing for them, they received new shoes and two pairs of socks!  The children could not control their happiness and they can now stay in school without interference with their studies. 

The children also received new blankets for their beds and this changed everything.  Sometimes you can’t realize how children are uncomfortable with torn blankets and shoes until you give them new ones.  The smiles on their faces changes and even how they respond to everything.    It is hard to express the joy of our hearts, YOU are a huge blessing in the lives of the needy.

When we look at what you are doing, we see humbled hearts in you, we see the big hearts that you and your desire to change the world.  YOU may not know the good things you are doing in these lives but we can assure you that they are BIG THINGS.  Some of these children wouldn’t be where they are, we can’t even guess what would have happened to them and their families but your prayers and support has brought them this far and above all given them hope and a future.

This year we have new children who have joined our school, as we share always the needs are many but we do what we can.  You are the only ones who can help us reach out to these new children, sharing with your friends and friends about the good work you are doing, we will get more friends willing to stand with us. Through the sponsorship support children and families are empowered and supported for a better future.  Together we can change the world for better!  Please spread the word. 

Thank you for being part of Tumaini family, we love you!
