MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER

If you want to walk fast, walk alone, if you want to walk far, walk together.  There is power in one; something important we have come to learn along our work in Tumaini Kwa Watoto. We have gained the strength to transform the lives of many children in Kenya through the strong partnerships we’ve had…

INFLUENCE AND IMPACT

120 children are off the streets and back with their families in five months thanks to TKW team’s influence on the streets of Nairobi, week in week out!  That’s the power of influence.  Many more children have been challenged to look at their future from a different perspective.  Together we leave a lasting impact as we…

Sticking together to survive

Isaac & Sammy had been on the streets for about one and a half years when the Tumaini Kwa Watoto (TKW) team met them. They kept moving to different bases in the city which meant it took a few months before rescuing them. Over the last few years, we have built reliable support systems in…

Step into Sande’s shoes…

Francis Sande said, “My mum and dad are separated, my father has remarried three times, my father’s latest wife doesn’t like me.   My mum is also remarried but she could not take me with her into her new home.”  Sande was left in no man’s land. Sande thought that the streets would offer him an…

‘My family, my best home …’

”I truly love Sammy because I nursed him ever since he was a small child” Said Samuel’s stepmother striking a conciliatory tone. As we related with the boy, we learnt that his relationship with the stepmother back at home was not entirely good. Samuel Milembo, now fourteen years old, has never known his biological mother…

What every mother longs for…

“My son, the mortuary was the last place I thought of looking for you…but something kept convincing me not to consider that idea as it could hind bad luck” said a teary Teresa. Initially when we found David Kimutai on the streets at their famous base, he looked distressed; like one who had been entrapped…

BACK HOME, BUT WHY THE STREETS…..?

We have often had stories of young boys, full of life yet wasting away the potential to do great things. What could have caused them run to the streets where life is so hostile, endure the cold nights, the rainy days without food and all the dangers on the streets? Could it be wrong choices,…

A better way to celebrate Easter…

We were at first startled when we met Abednego Musyoka and wondered how a boy with such a unique character found himself in a place where most of his peers have developed a rebellious attitude. Pastor! Pastor! Pastor! That’s what we heard other children calling Abednego when we met him at a government rehabilitation centre….

A TIME TO REFLECT

  A mug of tea, a quiet five minutes and time to play and reflect at the end of the day could make all the difference. As a team, we took time to reflect on our work for the first quarter in a different way, and had a team day out.   The last three…

AN INSPIRED GENERATION

 Their countenance shows how elevated with joy they are, their attentiveness and the inquisitive response of these young ones are always refreshing. It shows how yearning the students are for knowledge. Does this take you years back, when you had big dreams and now you’re living them? TKW takes the students through Life skills lessons,…
