Who Are We?
Tumaini Volunteers Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that believes in the power of knowledge and that supplying someone with the means to provide for themselves gives them hope for the future. The organization currently focuses on assisting the Internally Displaced Persons Camp in Maai Mahiu, Kenya to become self-sufficient. The people who settled in these camps are victims of post election violence that followed the 2007/2008 presidential election in Kenya.
The mission is to provide motivated locals with the resources to start small businesses that will benefit the community. Tumaini Volunteers reaches the residents first hand to teach them about the products and the socioeconomic benefits the business will provide.
