Mama Tunza’s Project

Mama Tunza

Mama Tunza’s children’s home was started in 1988 when the founder, Mary khasakhala, found an infant dumped in a road side drain. Filled with compassion she decided to adopt the baby. This gave birth to a lifelong passion and desire to start a children’s home.

Mama Tunza, as she likes to be called, has been at the fore front of advocating for the rights of children. The home started with an infant but has grown to have about 200 children who live at the Centre. Mama Tunza takes care of their well being. Most of them are orphans of HIV/AIDS or come from single parent homes.


The home accommodates and provides for these children entirely through donations.
Kiberia Youth Iinitiative For Community Development has been in partnership with Mama Tunza since 2007 by helping to fund raise for some of its projects.
