If you, or a company or trust, wish to underwrite the costs of a specific initiative, please contact us at to discuss how you can help. Our corporate sponsors find great satisfaction in being involved with our operations and receiving feedback as to how their generosity has made a real difference.
Specifically, we are seeking a corporate partner to team up with us on our “Containers to Tanzania” operation whereby we send out via Dar-es-Salaam regular container-loads of donated goods.
Also, we seek a corporate partner to provide or sponsor vehicles, usually Toyota Land Cruisers, without which we cannot service our offices and the remote parishes and villages.
For UK resident taxpayers, they will claim back the tax value of each donation from the UK tax office.

£10 sends an orphan to Primary School. Education is free but this small sum will buy the necessary school uniform, work books/pencils, and a mosquito net.
£80 funds a bike for a student or one of our Parish-workers who often have to travel long distances to school or other villages on poor roads.
£100 buys a breeding dairy-goat for a widow and a special goat-hut so they can be more self sustaining.
£1,000 pays for a safe new house for a family of orphans so they do not have to worry about heavy rains or wild animals.
£2,500 digs a shallow well that enables villages access to drinking water free from diseases for their children for the first time.
You can also read about how the funds are used on the “How We Help” page
Provide education which is essential for these children to break the cycle of poverty.
Tumaini Fund supporters have donated funds to build shallow and deep wells.
During a severe drought Tumaini appealed for donations to bring in food supplies to the neediest families.
We build house for families who live in terrible homes, often constructed of sticks and with a roof of leaves.
We provide thousands of mosquito nets to families to cover their beds at night.
Bicycles are provided to to students most in need so they can get to school.
Tumaini has 2 vocational training schools, one for tailoring and one for carpentry for orphans who leave after primary school.
