Paul came to the orphanage when he was 4 years old. His grandmother heard from the church she was attending that an orphanage was built for children without parents and that is how he came to be at Centre Orphelinat Tumaini.
“My father died when I was 9 months old and my mother brought me to my grandmother when I was 2 years old and she too died.”
Paul lived with his grandmother until he was 4 years old and then was brought to the orphanage and has been there ever since. He is now in his 2nd year of university and is thankful for the opportunity to study. He was enrolled into the university by good willed women who had visited the orphanage but the continued costs are a burden and he remains dependent on donations to complete his studies. Paul is unsure of what the future holds, but he is hopeful.
This is Paul.

GET TO KNOW US
Nakuona is a Swahili word that means ‘I SEE YOU’. We are a charity with the heart to help improve the quality of life for orphans in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Our future hope is to expand this support into other African and third world countries, letting the children know that they are seen, that they matter. We desire to lighten the burden for the orphanages by helping to meet their most pressing needs and in so doing practically show them the love of Christ.
We would love to do this with YOU.
