Our Core Values
THREE VALUES FORM THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR MISSION EFFORTS.
SEEK TO GLORIFY GOD IN ALL THAT WE DO.
ACT AND PERFORM WITH TRANSPARENCY
FOSTER AND PRACTICE TEAMWORK.
While many modern mission organizations help the needy through large social endeavors, raising money to provide funds for programs that they hope will change the circumstances of the people they serve, the TYC’s Tumaini Youth Center’s first priority in our African endeavor is to submit our time and resources to the Lord for His glory, and then to provide for the children in our care. We help to provide orphaned and vulnerable children with spiritual as well as physical needs. One of the goals of the TYC Tumaini Youth Center board is to allow the individuals we serve to become self-sufficient and not to continually rely on the financial support of others.
