Summary

The Tumaini Initiative is an innovative year-long technical textile design and self-development business training program that will over 5 years enable 180 people across 4 areas of Kenya to start their journey out of generational poverty. Individuals will be certified in a market demand skill set and placed into ethical jobs with us or with one of our vetted partners, allowing them to take that first step towards financial and social stability.

Challenge

In Kenya, 6.6% of the population was unemployed as of 2021, with Mombasa's unemployment rate as high as 49%. Those who do have jobs often live below the poverty line due to unpredictable wages. These workers lack the funds for safe shelter, child education, and necessary healthcare, and they are unable to dream of better wages and developing business skills. This leads to a generational cycle and a nation-wide barrier to economic growth.

Solution

Other nonprofits struggle to make a sustained impact in Kenya communities because they fail to address the well-being of the whole person. Fair wages aren't enough to address poverty if mothers are too busy care for their children to earn them. By combining comprehensive training with holistic programs, our trainees will be able to focus completely on their own development while knowing their basic needs are cared for. Tumaini is a gateway through poverty.

Long-Term Impact

After giving artisans training and dignified work, we believe they will take charge of their journey out of poverty and inspire others to do the same. By bringing more skilled workers into Kenya's workforce, the country's population will be able to support and employ one another, bringing our initiative forward. This will create a generational cycle of economic development that will fight back against Kenya's widespread poverty.
