The Yolo Foundation

The organization’s notion is based on the aphorism “You Only Live Once – YOLO.” There are no second chances once life has vanished. After knowing that we only live once, it is paramount to make life choices that promote healthy living no matter what and ensure that these choices are in the best interest of an individual’s life span.

Tumaini Nurses International

Tumaini Nurses International is a Not-for-Profit Organization federally Incorporated in Canada with its head office based in Toronto, Ontario. Our organization is comprised of directors who are Canadian Nurses with a common objective of health promotion and wellness of marginalized populations. Tumaini Nurses International has several branches internationally.

The founders started off as advocates for HIV/AIDS awareness in Kenya in 2003. We recognize that HIV continues to be a major global public health issue, with approximately 38.7 million people living with HIV by end of 2018. We continue to raise awareness and eradicate stigmatization of HIV victims. This organization was also established after a realization of the vast number of marginalized children with physical disabilities and mental health illness in Kenya . In some instances, such children are chained and locked in isolation under inhumane conditions. The 2 founding nurses started by contributing cash donations towards such families. Ou organisation is based on the nursing values of compassion, caring and advocacy.
