Tumaini International has been identifying the poorest of villages offering socio-economic development opportunities to support local business endeavors. Our basic approach is Assets Based Community Development (ABCD). Tumaini will only partner with groups or communities that already work and have a viable way to address their economic needs. We come in as partners, and empower the recipients to effectively address their own needs.
Chickens are a small gift that goes a long way significantly enhancing a families quality of life. They provide meat or can be used to farm eggs, creating economic independence. $25/chicken
Goats require very little water and care, similar to camels, making them a great resource for Kenya. Goats provide milk, meat, and crop fertilizer for families. $65/goat
Diary cows provide necessary nutrition for children. Maintaining a dairy cow is a cost effective way for a Tumaini family to provide milk for the children. This will improve the nutritional and economic status of a family. $310/cow
Due to limited electricity and power supply in Kenya, the gift of a solar lamp is of great value allowing children and families to complete daily living tasks as well as read/study at night. $70/lamp
