Organization Description
Zawadi la Tumaini Children's Home provides a loving home to orphaned and abandoned children of all backgrounds. We believe in providing our children with proper nutrition, education, and health care within an environment that builds strong family bonds. Our goal is to raise children to become responsible and dignified adults with core values that will empower them to be successful and contributing members of society.

Since opening our doors in March 2013, Zawadi la Tumaini has become home to 25 children. In addition we provide full time employment to 6 single mothers. Our unique family-based care model believes in providing quality care within a supportive family environment. We believe in hand ups, not hand outs. Family, Education, and Empowerment are our core beliefs.

In 2016 we are constructing our dream home for the Zawadi la Tumaini family. In addition we are beginning the foundations for our Hand in Hand Program for Single Mothers which will officially begin in 2017. The Hand in Hand Program for Single Mothers assists first time single mothers, ages 14 - 21 years old. These young women will be assisted through parenting workshops, health and family planning workshops, and weekly support groups. All mothers will be provided with the opportunity to finish their high school education, and participate in vocational training or income generating projects. Through the Hand in Hand Program for Single Mothers we hope to end the orphan cycle through our core beliefs - family, empowerment, and education.

Join us and become a member of the Zawadi la Tumaini family!
