Preschool Tumaini Academy

The preschool is named “Tumaini Academy” which means hope in Swahili.

At our base, we currently offer a preschool for the local children to come to. The preschool is named Tumaini Academy which means hope in Swahili.

We decided to name the preschool this because we believed that there is hope in the future for these children. A lot of our students come from very poor backgrounds and are even neglected/abused.

We encourage the teachers and volunteers to go on home visits with the students to learn more about where they come from and to establish a firm relationship which enhances the way the students learn.

Our preschool offers three classes: Babies, Nursery, and Pre-unit. The school has twelve students, ages ranging from three years old to seven years old.

We currently have one teacher teaching all three classes, so volunteers are very much welcome.
