We rehabilitate and educate children from disadvantaged backgrounds by running a fully supported education programme for over 200 pupils without school fees:
At our new Trade and Talent Centre, we run workshops in metalwork, masonry, woodwork, tailoring and painting. Our centre is a hub of trade skill activities, producing uniforms, furniture, and fixtures, for our school. Our aim is to make the centre self-sustainable through the sale of its products to local businesses.
We are nurturing leadership among our young people to help develop accessible skills-based programmes for disadvantaged youth. We are currently providing opportunities for training and creative entrepreneurship for 50 unemployed young people. Vocational training projects are integrated into the education for our boarders to participate in practical skills-based activities.
“Since 2004 when I first found Pepo La Tumaini in Kenya, to this day, I am amazed by the sheer force for good this small organisation has become. First, it was only Khadja and her one-woman campaign to save the children whose parents were dying from HIV-AIDS. Now it’s grown into a community powerhouse that deserves all our support. Tumaini stands between these children and the street.”
