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