About Tumaini Innovation Vocational Training Center

Tumaini Innovation Center is a Community Based Organization (CBO) that seeks to address the unique challenge of vulnerable children and youth. Street connected children and youth are a vulnerable population who miss their opportunity for education, training, and lack access to health care or other rehabilitation services.

The Tumaini Center seeks to engage vulnerable youth in a revolutionary new educational model that breaks down educational barriers faced by street youth and other vulnerable youth in a changing society, leverage their inherent resourcefulness, resilience, and independence, and equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to not only get off the streets but to have successful and productive careers in their community.

The program empowers them with hope, knowledge, skills, opportunities, and resources necessary for them to earn a positive livelihood off the streets.   These livelihood opportunities include learning vocational skills like Motor Vehicle Mechanics, Metalwork and Fabrication, Carpentry, Masonry, Electrical & Solar Power Installation, Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy, Catering, Life Skills and Entrepreneurship Skills, enabling them to access employment, or start a business, reunite with their families, live communally or independently.

Tumaini Center supports and empowers them towards their chosen future.

Why study at Tumaini Innovation Vocational Training Center

Tumaini Innovation Vocational Training Center is a residential alternative school serving at-risk and out-of-school young people especially those living and working on the streets.

Street children come from families who are the “poorest of the poor”, unable to provide for their children. They are living without positive role models and relationships, missing their opportunity for education, vulnerable to violence and disease, and without access to health care or other social services. They are fundamentally denied their rights as children by the demands of living a life of survival on the streets. So in the end, all of us at Tumaini will strive tirelessly to provide hope – hope to the children, their families, and the larger community.

Hope that there are opportunities for a brighter, healthier, happier future for street children. And hope that we can not only achieve our mission but also inspire our vision, of a world without street children.
