Nyumbani is the Swahili word for "home." It is also the name of an orphanage outside of Nairobi, founded in 1992 as a hospice for HIV infected babies. Its mission has evolved, but not its ideal to serve society's most vulnerable.

"I read your book: 'Nyumbani and the Star Thrower & Adopting Maisha'. It is truly lovely! What I appreciated as I read it is that you have an intimate knowledge of how Nyumbani functions. There is an extraordinary accuracy, an accuracy that often lacks considerably in other media productions. Congratulations."
