Founded in 2013, with a mission of helping the most vulnerable children in Kenya and surrounding areas, Tumaini Hand Missions was founded as a children’s center to the poorest families and in Kenya and beyond. During this time, Mr. Sammy Mwanja (Founder and President) was going through much strife as he had no hope or direction for his dream of Tumaini Hand Missions to become reality. He visited numerous orphanages in Kenya and the neighboring country (Uganda Region) and witnessed the heart-breaking conditions that the children had to live in.
Co-Founder Vionah Namulunda had the persistent passion to make plans for the establishment of a lifeline of hope for the needy and most vulnerable children and elderly.
Tumaini Hand Missions had humble beginnings with just a few friends who were willing to donate to the children. They immediately began helping needy children in the Uasin Gishu County area on a small scale in the slums of Eldoret.
As the number of donors grew, so did the number of children being cared for in Kenya. An internet presence began to generate requests for help from several other countries and investigation lead to discovery of a magnitude of need nearly beyond belief.
Along the way, we moved into the current offices in Eldoret Kenya, where they have continued to grow, both in the number of vulnerable children they care for and the scope of that care.
Tumaini Hand Missions is still under the direction of the same Board and Corporate Leadership, a mini re-brand that provides a more accurate reflection of the organizations mission and its clients, the most vulnerable children of the world.
