The Staff at the Tumaini Youth Center are paramount to the successful raising of these abandoned and orphaned children. Working at the Tumaini Youth Center is a BIG job, requiring expertise, lots of patients and a huge heart. Tecla Jerono-Matron was the only female staff member until just recently, when Pauline was hired to assist her with the care of the girls that are residing there. Tumaini Youth Center currently has eight girls in residence because that is all at the center had room for. They are super excited and thankful for the new girl’s dormitory that is now under construction. This new facility will allow for up to 36 girls, which will be a huge expansion for the staff to adapt to. They are all well-armed with a solid Christian faith. The older female children often serve as big sisters and mentors for the smaller girls. This makes for a positive family environment for these kids, who have learned that we all need love and acceptance to be happy and safe in our daily lives.
Greetings in Jesus name. Attached is a group picture of staff members. They are; Tecla Jerono – Matron, Eliud Kuto – administrator, Jared Mbogo – Spiritual care, Moses Bowen – Security, Moses Yatich – Dorm parent, and Benjamin Losironyang – Social work.
Pauline is not in the picture and she is helping Tecla. She was in hospital when we were taking this picture.
We will send individual pictures soon with bios.
Yours in Christ’s service,
Tecla and Eliud
