Tumaini means Hope in Swahili.
Tumaini for the Future is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities for youth in Nakuru, Kenya.
The organization was founded by a Kenyan runner, Moses Waweru. Moses currently resides in Wisconsin.
When Moses visited his hometown of Nakuru in September 2011, a local school teacher reached out to him for help. She explained the parents of the school children in her class could not afford the tuition and consequently, she had fallen behind on rent, and did not have money to purchase ugali (cornmeal) and tea to feed the students. Moses vowed to do everything in his power to help this teacher keep her school and continue to provide an education for these children.
As soon as he returned to the US, he transformed his vision into Tumaini for the Future.
