Who We Are


Tumaini ministry Centre was inaugurated on July 27th 1997, out of a personal call and desire to serve the less privileged children whom could not afford even a day’s meal and mostly were kept out of school to the streets. The ministry founder, Very Rev Bernard Muindi and others started by placing the destitute children under the care of existing organization, the PCEA Riamukurwe Parish, where well-wishers embarked on collecting food and distributing to those children. At some point, due to the need for better shelter, some donors came in and joined in erection of a dormitory. The main donor being Rev. Edward R Danks, a former minister of Noroton Presbyterian Church, Darien Connecticut, U.S.A and a good friend of Rev. Muindi who sold his own house, donated the amount to the very cause of charity. He was joined later by Faith Presbyterian Church, Emanaus, USA. The current facility or dormitory has a capacity to hold over 300 children but now has 144 residents and 36 others in colleges and universities.


 Tumaini Childrens Ministry has two children homes both situated in Nyeri County within the Nyeri central District. Tumaini Children’s home is located on a 4.5 acres piece of land owned by PCEA Riamukurwe Parish; four kilometers from Nyeri Town, south of Wambugu Farm along Nyeri/Karatina road. Huruma Children’s home is Located on a 2 acre piece of land owned by the Government of Kenya, and is situated some two kilometres from Nyeri town along Nyeri/Othaya road.

Huruma children’s Home has a broad origin and was trusted to the care of Tumaini Ministry from the government of Kenya (GOK) in the year 2005. This home faces many challenges since some of its residents are disabled and disadvantaged children in the society. Huruma home currently takes care of 62 children of whom some exhibit mental and physical challenges.
