Tumaini Fund for Economic Development International commenced operations in Kenya, in 2005.


Involves the provision of HIV/AIDS education, preventive measures, care and treatment services and products; whereby victims of HIV/AIDS are beneficiaries.


The Prison's Ministry project undertaken by our founder; Pst. David Karanja, is a step towards the reincorporation of former prisoners into society. Our long term aim for this project is to be able to build a facility offering guidance and counselling services as well as training initiatives towards a new crime-free chapter of their lives.


We empower the vulnerable, by providing educational support to the education centres under Tumaini's umbrella. Such schools include; Glory Education Centre located in Kiambiu, Nairobi County and Siaka School for Special Children, located in Bungoma County.


We empower street youths by equipping them with technical skills that will enable them to sustain their lives. We also have long term goals: to build a rehabilitation centre, that will provide a safe environment to further their education, provide financial literacy and enable them to identify their talents and use this to create a positive impact within their communities.


Tumaini Fund for Economic Development International (TFEDI) is a local Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) based in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. It was set up in order to combat the widespread poverty in Nairobi's slums and many social problems that arise under such conditions. Further challenges; such as AIDS, hunger, poor sanitary conditions, low literacy levels are connected to poverty.

With the SDGs providing the driving force; Tumaini's vision is to see all people healthy and capable of providing for their basic needs.


Our goals as Tumaini Fund include:

  • The eradication of poverty; utilising initiatives and working closely with synergic organisations, to enhance financial literacy.
  • Provision of educational support to children from disadvantaged families within Kiambiu Slums and those abandoned and neglected due to their special needs by their kin in Siaka, Bungoma County.
  • Empowering and supporting the women under our HIV program, through mentoring, guidance and counselling and provision of upskilling opportunities with partner organisations.
