Footprints Orphanage
  • Tumaini  joined us on 7th Feb 2011

  • From where Tuma started her  life ..............


    Tumaini and her older brother Samwell, were found living with their elderly grandparents after the death of their parents. The village in Mwatapa where we found  them was in a poverty stricken area with mainly orphaned children living with HIV. Fortunately after the rescue and routine medical checks we were relieved that both children had  not been infected.

    Tumaini  was only two years old when she was rescued with Sammy, clearly traumatized  by her early years and desperate for love and attention.

  • This is what living at Footprints achieves!


    Over the last 4 years Tumaini has grown into a wonderfully happy little girl with many friends at school.

    She loves to dance and sing and get involved in helping around the home with the aunties.

    She especially loves to read aloud, gaining pleasure from using her voice to create atmosphere!
