Valerie Kelch  WAUSAU, WI

Tumaini Volunteers Inc.  is a non profit organization that assists developing communities in Kenya become more self sufficent through providing sustaining projects. 

This spring we will be expanding the production of chickens at a school, Southern Cross Academy,
 in the SIDP Camp in the town of Mahi Mahu, just outside of Nairobi.

The completion of this project will provide all of the children at the school access to a reliable food source, and excess eggs will be sold to the local community. Profits will be used to give the teachers at the school a steady income and ensure the students have enough school supplies. 

The donations will cover the cost of the incubator that will hold over 1,000 eggs, materials to expand the pen and build more coops for the chickens,  and start up materials such as fertilizer, chickens, and eggs.  Funds will also cover the cost of one of our board members to travel to Kenya with the volunteers and a camera man to film a documentry for the organization.

Thank you for your support!

Happy New Year!

In just over four weeks our team of four volunteers will be boarding the plane to head to Kenya. We still have a ways to go to have enough money to expand the chicken project at Southern Cross Academy.

If you don't want to donate here, feel free to mail a check to Tumaini Volunteers, PO Box 726, Wausau, WI 54402. But you need to get it in the mail now!

Thanks so much for your support. And these kids thank you too.

Meet the founder of Tumaini Volunteers, Valerie Kelch. When she volunteered for the first time in Kenya when she was only 16, she could not have imagined how it was going to change her life. She returned to Kenya two more times, for a total of 9 months, and will be making her fourth trip this spring.

This trip will be the accumulation of nearly three years of work, in bringing Tumaini Volunteers from a dream to a nonprofit organization to a group which is about to making a difference in the lives of 250 children at Southern Cross Academy. Please join us in making Val's dream a reality.

If you can't make a donation through this account, feel free to mail a check to Tumaini Vounteers, PO Box 726, Wausau, WI 54402
