TMSC, alongside Tumaini Miles of Smiles School, gives quality, Christian education to more than 300 children from the rural areas. As the saying goes, “Knowledge is power.” Education is among our strongest weapons when it comes to fighting and eradicating poverty, which will in turn impact lives and communities.
Being able to attend school equips a child with more than just knowledge and understanding. It imparts the power to make better decisions, leading to a better future for themselves, their community, and the entire world. We support all the orphans and the poor children throughout their education. We have a feeding program that helps them stay in school and concentrate. Tumaini Miles of Smiles School has provided a conducive learning environment which gives makes them feel loved. Just to share with you about the statistics in our county between 2012 and 2013: We had children who went through primary school but only 15% joined high school. In Malava Sub County we had about 5000 pupils who went through primary school and only 20% joined high school.
Tumaini is an organization focusing on the disadvantaged in the community and heartbeat is to change our community for a better future. Tumaini Miles of Smiles activities revolve around caring for the orphaned and vulnerable children, provision of quality education and skills, community empowerment, free medical programs and nurturing talents among the youths.
Tumaini is a Swahili word for ‘HOPE’, Sponsor a child today and help break poverty cycle and bring hope to children, widows and families leaving a mark that will never be forgotten
This campaign targets spiritual needs in addition to physical needs. Over 300 Bibles have been given to Tumaini students, staff and guadians and the community around.
