Mission

Tumaini means "hope" in Swahili, the national language of Tanzania. That is what we seek to provide the AIDS orphans.

The HIV epidemic raging across Africa is a tragedy of epic proportions, one that is altering the region's demographic future and leaving millions of orphans in its wake. Our mission is to provide education while meeting the basic material and medical needs of the orphans. Basic education has the potential to permit the children to work towards self-fulfillment and empowerment, to provide them with a hopeful future, to secure their social stability, to improve their quality of life, and to stem the AIDS epidemic driven by poverty and ignorance.

In Africa, we live in, and are supported by, the extended family system. However, extended family members who traditionally would take in an orphaned relative are themselves too sick, already care for too many other children of their own and for other orphans, or have died of AIDS. In the midst of all this, we are deeply concerned about these orphans? future, and especially their education. Empowering these children with education will not only mean a promising future for them but also a proven decrease in street children, crime and political instability.

Tumaini's purpose is to help alleviate the overwhelming burden on the extended families who care for the AIDS orphans by providing the minimal funds necessary for practical education, so important to them, helping them to free to choose an independent, purposeful life over abject poverty and meaningless suffering.
