The first seven children lived in a rental house until 2009 when a small section of this house was built. This house accommodates a capacity of 50 children and the other two cubicles outside this house accommodates the teenagers who are currently in high school. Over 80 children consider this as their home. The other Tumaini miles of smiles children live in the community with family members/guardians who are supported by TMSC. Tumaini is looking forward to building pod houses that will accommodate a family of 8 children.
