We help children in Kenya and other East African countries by supporting selected community-based organizations and children's centers there. "Tuma" is an abbreviation for "Tumaini" and means hope in Swahili. "Kimbi" stands for "Kimbilio", which means refuge.
Originally we were named Tareto Maa Germany e.V. and exclusively supported the Tareto Maa Center in Kenya. Today we provide assistance to various self-help groups and small organizations that care for orphans, girls who have had to flee from genital mutilation and forced marriage, as well as children who have been victims of violence or need help due to disabilities or serious illnesses.
In der Corona-Krise sorgen wir gerade dafür, dass die Kinder genug zu essen und zu trinken haben. Aber was sind die wichtigsten Nahrungsmittel und Getränke z.B. in Kenia? Das Nationalgetränk ist eindeutig Chai – schwarzer Tee mit viel Milch und Zucker. Den trinken auch Kinder den ganzen Tag. Das klassische Essen besteht aus: Ugali (ein Maisbrei), Bohnen und Sukuma (grüner Kohl, der mit Zwiebeln zubereitet wird). Für den europäischen Geschmack schmeckt das meist etwas trocken. Aber es liefert Energie, Vitamine und Proteine.
In the Corona crisis, we want to make sure that the children have enough to eat and drink. But what are the most important food and beverages, for example in Kenya? The national drink is clearly: chai – black tea with lots of milk and sugar. Even children drink it all day long. The classic food consists of Ugali (a corn porridge), beans and Sukuma (green cabbage prepared with onions). For the European taste that usually is a bit dry. But it provides energy, vitamins and proteins.
