The Tumaini Fund Channel Islands seeks to provide help to hundreds of thousands of children in Tanzania, one of the poorest countries in Africa. 100% of every financial donation made will go to Kagera to support the widows and orphans. There are plenty of ways you can get involved;
We regularly hold sewing workshops in Guernsey to make washable hygiene kits for Tumaini orphans. These kits are often the first sanitary products they have and allow girls to attend school during their periods.
Everyone is welcome at the workshops even if sewing isn’t your thing as there is always cutting out, folding and packing to be done too.
If you’d like to knit for us at home or as part of a group please let us know. Our knitting programme in Guernsey, Sark and Alderney provides a meaningful activity for many people in the 80-90 year age group. Knitting maintains manual dexterity, is beneficial for cognitive function and provides social connection.
