Giving New Hope in Lubumbashi DRC

Silence in the face of evil is evil. Not speaking is speaking. Not to act is to act.

Our Focus is to First Love


Giving a new hope (“Tumaini” in Swahili) and the conviction to believe in a new and better future for orphaned children in Lubumbashi. The orphans, or so-called ‘wanderers’ in the local culture, need a safe and warm home to rebuild their own life on the foundation of love, respect, self-confidence and healthy relationships in close collaboration with local and international professionals and volunteers.

The Tumaini Mission

To ensure protection and education to vulnerable and orphan children in DRC with the aim of reinserting them into society.

Here is Our Challenge

Lubumbashi is a city in the southeastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and is the second-largest in the country after Kinshasa. Lubumbashi is the mining capital, acting as a hub for many of the country's biggest mining companies.

 

The main challenges in this area concern the vulnerable and orphan children who live in the streets because of war over gem stones (i.e. cobalt, diamond, etc.), polygamy, poverty and the phenomenon of the ‘child witch’ within the so-called ‘church’.

 

Despite the work of the International Community and many Civil Society Organizations, the children remain the most vulnerable group in the DRC.

We long to see the children of DRC thrive!

Help Us Get Started

Our plan for the orphanage is to incorporate a small farm for chicken production that would generate jobs for the orphans of Tumaini (from the age of 16 years old). We will also ensure literacy through close collaboration with local schools and regular medical checks-ups. The orphanage will be a warm home for all the children where they can develop socially and spiritually.
