Our income comes from three main sources:

  • personal giving by the trustees and other friends
  • small grants from charitable trusts
  • fundraising events in the UK

Our expenditure is around £25,000 a year, which funds

  • Rent and maintenance of the house
  • Staff salaries
  • Food, heating and water
  • Health care and school costs for the boys

Put another way, less than £20 a week completely transforms the life of a child in Nairobi.

We would be delighted if you wanted to join us:

Support Tumaini

£13 would pay the rent for a child for a month. £50/month pays the primary school costs for all the children in the home. £80/month would support all the costs of a child.
