Tumaini Children's Ministry in Nyeri
A mission effort of the PCEA Riamukurwe parish, the Nyeri Center feeds over 300 destitute children. Over 197 children reside at Tumaini and are attending school. The parish also cares for 56 children at Huruma, a nearby facility that includes a number of disabled children. The hope brought by witnessing to the love of Christ to these vulnerable children is bearing fruit in wonderful ways. Some talented young people have completed high school and, with help from this ministry, are pursuing vocational training and university studies at several institutions of higher learning. Their success is a great inspiration for the younger children in the program.
A vocational training program, including computer and sewing classes, serves other post-secondary students and people from the community. Work has begun on an expanded vocational training center that will permit the program to offer more courses such as carpentry, auto mechanic and body repair, plumbing and electronics repair. We are also excited about the e-learning program, an online course in partnership with the Presbyterian University of East Africa.
Funds are needed to continue the ministry of feeding, clothing, and educating these orphaned children of Nyeri.
