Welcome to The Tumaini Fund in Canada

The Tumaini Fund aims to bring support and hope for the future to the estimated 200,000 AIDS orphans in Kagera, the north-west region of Tanzania.

We are motivated by Jesus’ words: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me”.
