The Importance of Family and Community
We believe that children grow best in families. A child’s long-term developmental needs are best met within a family, rather than an institution like an orphanage. Strengthening the capacity of families and communities is the most effective way to address the needs of children made vulnerable by HIV, AIDS and poverty.
Respect for Community Owners /Being Agile, Adaptive, and Responsive/hip and Local Leadership/Being Collaborative
A community’s ownership and investment in forging its own solutions to local problems is essential to sustainability. We seek to learn from and to work in partnership with local leadership.

Tumukunde Initiative join Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals can make the world a better place by 2030. See how. Imagine a world where every child is educated.
If you haven’t asked yourself this question yet, it’s probably time you thought about it. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are important and, if achieved, will make the world a better place for EVERYONE by 2030. Never heard of them? Don’t worry – we’re here to help. Here are just a few reasons why YOU should care about the SDGs:
The Covid-19 pandemic has tremendously impacted the wellbeing of people - worsening the food crisis, increasing the poverty levels and widening inequalities. A healthy, peaceful, just and climate resilient society is becoming a far cry with fast dwindling commitments of the government towards a just and equitable recovery. Undeterred rise in global temperature due to anthropogenic activities defy all claims of a net zero emission. The war against Ukraine is threatening to destabilise the global order.
The threat from the COVID virus looms large with highly unequal rate of vaccination between the rich and the low- and middle-income countries. The blatant opposition of the rich countries to the TRIPS waiver at WTO lays bare their preference for the corporate over the people.
The worsening debt situation in Latin America, Africa and Asian countries has forced their governments to take austerity measures cutting spending on social protection, health and education.
Older people, persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples, ethnic minorities, communities discriminated by on work and descent, migrants, women, transgender people, and children are suffering in multiple ways. There has been alarming rise of violence against women and girls.
Children are the future. We believe that children are resilient and able to overcome many challenges.
