Tumaini means hope in Swahili

The Tumaini Project was set up in 2009  by Emma Paton, from Scotland with the goal of raising money for a school in Northern Tanzania, it is not a charity in the formal sense.  It’s a collection of friends raising money to help educational projects in Tanzania.

The aim of the Tumaini Project has changed and expanded since it was first founded and while it still supports the original school, it has expanded to support other projects and the creation of a scholarship fund which is currently sponsoring over 60 children through primary school.

The purpose of The Tumaini Project online is to raise awareness about the importance of education.
