Outreach programmes contribute to the social and occasionally economic well being of an individual or community. The Foundation has worked closely with smaller groups comprising mainly of children – Children’s Homes, Nursery Schools and issues affecting children – to ensure that assistance that may not be easily available to these groups may be complimented by the Foundation. The fact that early childhood development is key in ones general development we have focused our outreach programmes on this group and have so far worked on providing reading and writing material, games equipment, medicines, food, financial assistance and general material and equipment relating to their improved growth.
The Foundation has outreach programs in Nairobi and upcountry.

Prayers Beyond Boundaries Children’s Home, Mai Mahiu

During the visit the foundation staff and volunteers had fun time with the children apart from giving them christmas presents, clothing, food and school material. “I appeal to the government to also look into the possibility of assisting such homes that are catering for orphaned children caught up in the post election violence as it continues with the resettlement of displaced families” Mrs Musalia.
Kenyatta National Children’s Ward
Kenyatta National Children’s Ward: “Terrorism is a heinous act and one should never use children as a shield to perpetuate these heinous acts. That is a sure sign of cowardice” said Mrs Musalia upon her visit to console the children who were caught up in a terrorist act on 30th of September 2013 at St Polycarp ACK Church in Pangani Nairobi. The Foundation made a donation towards the medical bills incurred by the children at the hospital.
Nairobi Hospice, TUMAINI Rider
Nairobi Hospice is a registered charitable organization that takes care of patients with life limiting illnesses. They attend to patients with cancer, HIV/Aids and other chronic illnesses.
No patient undergoing treatment should be denied access to treatment due to the cost of transportation. They are already catering for their medical expenses without having to burden themselves with the logistics of transport.
With this is mind the Foundation in partnership with local transport company City Hoper launched TUMAINI Rider – a ground transportation service for Nairobi Hospice patients on our aid program. TUMAINI Rider offers this facility to and from the Hospice.
