The Nyumbani Children's Home is a living place for HIV orphans. It was established by Father Angelo D'Agostino on September 1992, and started the “Lea Toto” support program from 1998 which covers basic medical and nursing care, counseling and psychological support, spiritual guidance, Relief for social needs, HIV transmission prevention education and promotion of community empowerment/ownership and self-help.

Executive Director Sister Mary Owens, who is the 2010 nominee for the Jonathan Mann Award for Global Health and Human Rights, expressed her appreciation as “Nyumbani Village does not have electricity and therefore solar lights will be a great help. The donation from Toyota Tsusho is very much appreciated by the Board of Directors, staff and the over 600 inhabitants of Nyumbani Village”.
