Mama Faraji (Tuleeni Executive Director and Founder) was staying with the Orphans since 2001 in her home but later on 2005 she decide to start an Orphanage after observing that the number of Orphans in her street increase so the possible way to help them is to keep them in the same area and create a very special family to nature the growth and development of the children as well as make them live as a family. The reason push her to establish the Orphanage was to reduce the problems left to the children who are Orphans after the death of their parents.
Despite the troubled background of the children, they are happy and appreciative of all they have been given. Their joy is nothing short of humbling. They are eager to learn and make the most of what they get.
In the beginning the orphanage had 16 children where most of them were in primary school. Later on the number of Orphans in the center increase from 16 to 48 then now Mama Faraji is helping more than 100 children. Many of the children at Tuleeni Orphans Home are students in different schools in Moshi.
