We help children in Kenya and other East African countries by cooperating with 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 together with various self-help groups and small local 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.
We support the children in three work areas:
School (school fees, school uniforms and school materials),
health (medical costs and medical treatments)
as well as infrastructe and daily goods (everything that the children need to live in the children's center in a safe, good and healthy way).
We are happy about any kind of support. All donations will be used for the welfare of the children. For further information please visit our website: www.tuma-kimbi.org.
