Our Mission Statement
The Tumaini Center seeks to engage vulnerable youth in a revolutionary new educational model that breaks down educational barriers faced by street youth and other vulnerable youth in a changing society, leverage their inherent resourcefulness, resilience, and independence, and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to not only get off the streets but to have successful and productive careers in their community.
The program empowers them with hope, knowledge, skills, opportunities, and resources necessary for them to earn a positive livelihood off the streets. These livelihood opportunities include learning vocational skills like Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Metalwork and Fabrication, Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical & Solar Power Installation, Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy, Catering, Life Skills and Entrepreneurship Skills, enabling them to access employment, or start a business, reunite with their families, live communally or independently.
Tumaini Center supports and empowers them towards their chosen future.
