Tumaini Senior School


Tumaini Senior School was built to meet the needs of children heading households. These children are either orphaned or have parents too sick to work. As the oldest child, they have been forced to drop out of mainstream education to provide for their families. Without the tools and qualifications to support a household, they have had to resort to begging, scavenging and sex work, to survive. Our Senior School offers 70 of these children the chance to come back to school, complete the last three years of primary level education, and re-adapt to life as a child in a safe, boarding environment.

Pepo La Tumaini provides nutritional and welfare support to their families, thus relieving the child’s burden. Each class has an average of 25 pupils, all aspirational children, committed to making a difference in their futures. Our unique approach offers an academic and vocational curriculum, along with life skills training. Pupils receive full psycho-social support including an Art For Life programme which uses song, dance and visual arts as an expressive therapy method to build self-esteem.

“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.”
