Our Tumaini family lives on two acres in Ngyani Village on Mount Meru, where our children enjoy their (donated) soccer pitch and basketball court after school, homework and chores. They eat nutritious food including meat, milk and eggs and are provided the best medical care we can provide when needed. We spend millions of shillings every year to provide our children with the very best education we can afford and are proud to share that we have produced several university graduates!
Tumaini was founded by Mama Dee, Cherie Tiffin-Szucs (Canada) and Oddo Ndonde (Tanzania) who are supported by some pretty exceptional administrators both in Tanzania and around the world.
Our primary support comes through child sponsorship and targeted fundraising efforts which go into a general “pool” or fund and are used strictly for the day to day operations of Tumaini House and in support of our outreach family. Every non Tanzanian is a committed, unpaid volunteer which helps keep administration costs low. We are extremely proud to declare that over 90% of our dollars go DIRECTLY to the care of our children!
Our PROJECTS section describes additionally needed efforts but no project can proceed without being funded first. Please review this section and see if you can help!
When we founded Tumaini it was our commitment to provide the very best nutritional, safety and educational care we possibly could for our children, enabling them to have a REAL chance at a future. We are committed to complete transparency so you can be confident in your support of us.
It truly does “take a village to raise a child”. In this case a global village. Please do consider helping us give our children hope! Asante!
