Camp‘I am so thankful for the tender support from Tumaini Kwa Watoto for considering me to attend this camp. While at Diguna I learnt a lot and I am going to respond by actions.  Thank you TKW team for picking us from town, paying our fares and taking us to such a wonderful place.   Thank you, 1,000 times. Your investment in me is not in vain.’  Says 18 -year old Musa (not real name) who five year ago was on the streets but he is preparing for KCSE this year (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education).

Empower and Transform through mentoring: Joyful songs around the campfire and a tug-of-war to encourage teamwork. Lots and lots of laughter, fun and games. We are always looking for ways to empower and build our children to maximize their potential at Tumaini Kwa Watoto.  April 2017 camp at Diguna Retreat Centre was the highlight of April holidays for some of our high school students.  Equipping them with bible based life skills was part of the week’s program.  For TKW team, it was an encouraging week of seeing the faith of the students transformed as the week progressed and filling their hearts with God’s word and life changing experiences.  This is what they had to say about the week:

Joni: ‘’I enjoyed making new friends.  I appreciated all the spiritual guidance I received as a student there, from my counselors and the other staff.  I learned a lot about the word of God and how I am to apply it to my life.  I say thank you 10,000 times”.

AIC Diguna is an amazing place to learn about God, discover friendships and do many fun activities.  It was a great week I learned how to abstain from sex, drugs and putting boundaries in life.  I interacted with other students and learned from them. The only thing I can do to prove this promise is to show it by actions.  Famu

Deno 18 years old and in Form 4, had this to say ‘’ It has been interesting being taught God’s word.  The program began after taking breakfast, we would go to the chapel to worship and afterwards move to our groups.   I learned how to avoid bad company, (Ephesian 5:15), how to put God first in everything, sexual purity and setting boundaries.   I am so thankful for giving me an opportunity to attend the camp.

‘Thank you for taking me to AIC Diguna. It made a profound impact in my life, as a young man I learned about God.  I felt challenged on how to be a better Christian and this is going to change my life.  D.G.

Pete is another one who is so grateful for considering him to attend the camp at AIC Diguna, he wishes to be given another chance.  It was a wonderful opportunity.

Cheri, a form 0ne student:  ‘it was awesome taking me to a camp.  I learned creating boundaries is important, the power in the words of my mouth and self-awareness.  If I was not given this opportunity I would have not learnt all this. I am so thankful and looking forward to another chance.

Musal, a Form 4 student had this to say, ‘I am so thankful for the tender support from Tumaini Kwa Watoto for considering me to attend the camp. While at Diguna I learned a lot and I am going to respond by actions.  Thank you TKW team for picking us from town, paying our fares and taking us to such a wonderful place.   Thank you, 1,000 times. Your investment in me is not in vain.

“I’m so happy that my nephew received a whole week of spiritual counseling and guidance and counseling to enhance his life– with the dedicated people that you had at your camp to promote their well-being. Our children are learning very valuable lessons in this troubled world. So many other children are going in the wrong direction — children that don’t have the church, school and good people to teach them right and wrong. Thank you so much for making a difference in our children’s lives.’ – Aunty Eliza.
