Meet the Children of the Tumaini Youth Center:
You can make a great impact on the lives of these abandoned and orphaned children by donating to our cause. This money provides food, clothing, a mattress and bed to sleep on, a bible, medicine, malaria prevention, and other necessities for their education and spiritual growth.
Please Lend You Support:
Too many of these children are born into adverse circumstances that are beyond their control. They have been abandoned or orphaned to elderly relatives that do not have the means to support them. Because they are not provided with their basic means of survival, let alone the means to grow up and become responsible adults, many are left to fend for themselves on the streets where some are recruited by militant groups. Instead, you can give them the second chance they need by supporting the Tumaini Youth Center today! Your contribution will help supply them with their daily physical needs. Yet, even more importantly, it will help to provide them the Spiritual, Emotional and Educational guidance that will help them through out their lives.
