To help children abandon
street life and move into
an alternative, healthy,
viable lifestyle.


Eldoret, Kenya

Tumaini in Kiswahili means hope. The Tumaini Children’s Drop In Center is dedicated to empowering and serving street children in Eldoret, Kenya. Street children roam the streets all day in search of food, money, and friendship. Some are orphaned, while others come from families who are the poorest of the poor, unable to provide for their children. These children are missing their opportunity for education, are vulnerable to violence and disease, and are without access to health care. They are fundamentally denied their rights as children by the demands of living a life of survival on the streets.


The Tumaini Children's Drop In Center seeks to improve the lives of street children in Eldoret, Kenya by empowring them with hope, knowledge, skills, opportunities and resources necessary for them to find a healthy alternative to street life.
