In 2006, the Session of CEPC set aside funds to build the Tumaini Children's Village in Soy, Kenya, north of Eldoret. It is home to Kenyan orphans. Twelve children live in each cottage with their houseparents. These houseparents are the lynchpins in the system of care at Tumaini. They raise the children under their care as if they were their own children. Fathers are encouraged to work in the community to assist in their own family support. Mothers oversee the household operation and care for the children and cottage as they would their own homes.
Tumaini is the Swahili word for hope. Through the hope we have in Christ, the Children's Village leaders and houseparents seek to raise the next generation of Christian leaders for Kenya.
