Tom abungo


In 2007, Tom felt a burden to go back to the slums, where he had grown up, and offer help to the many less-fortunate and poor children. It is then that Connect with a Child was born. Today through the leadership of Tom, Connect with a Child has given an opportunity for over 1,000 children to receive an education through schools and an orphanage.  Connect with a Child through his leadership has drilled wells to provide water, and over 60,000 people are able to get access to clean drinking water.

Tom also makes trips to the US with the Hakuna Matata Children’s Choir, which is made up of children from Kenya. Most of these children are from the slums and from a very poor background. The Choir is dedicated to spreading love, hope and joy while raising awareness for the desperate plight of orphans and other vulnerable children.
