Community Health

We use a community health model addressing home-based care, sexual health, HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health needs.

Our unique approach toward Community Health involves our beneficiaries taking the lead in their own change process. Due to the limited number of professionals in our area and the diverse cultural and religious fabric of our communities, we choose to invest in those who have the best resilience to do the work. This includes having the ability to address sensitive psychological issues, which are best known by people who understand them and live alongside them.

Delivered by 250 youth peer providers and 45 home-based carers and community health workers, our outreach addresses home-based care, sexual health, HIV/AIDS and maternal/child health needs. The Mama Tumaini Health Clinic and nine community centres (in urban and very rural communities), reach 7,500 people plus a further 3,000+ local youth each year. With extensive connections and experience PLTJ was well-placed to respond to the Covid pandemic.

Christiane Amanpour - Pepo La Tumaini Jangwani

Christiane Amanpour

CNN, Chief International Anchor

“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.”

Community Health Chart
  • Community healthcare, outreach, and information for marginalised communities such as pastoralists and people with HIV
  • Education and child protection for at-risk children (child-headed households and street- connected vulnerable children)
  • Peacebuilding and community support for the diverse, multi-ethnic communities in Isiolo.

Positive Living

In this unique position, we have the responsibility to prevent our community from being left behind or left out. We prioritise the best standards of care for the vulnerable and marginalised by delivering accessible and inclusive services for healthcare, education, and vocational opportunities for our young people. While there are significant societal barriers for our youth to overcome, our mission remains to protect people’s dignity while meeting their human rights and advancing their holistic development.
