On behalf of the Board of Directors of Nyumbani USA, we are honored to share with you that Rotary Club of Washington, DC representing Rotary International have been selected to be one of the recipient of the Nyumbani Award.
 
Nyumbani is a recognized world leader in providing HIV/AIDS services to children and affected families in Kenya. (Nyumbani.org)
 
Nyumbani delivers comprehensive medical and home-based HIV/AIDS services in crucial areas of need: diagnostic services and critical medical care, holistic family and community building, education and preventive care, environmental sustainability, and self-reliance. Nyumbani presents contrasts: We are ultramodern and high-tech, yet traditional and family­-centered. Nyumbani serves the most vulnerable. Four Nyumbani programs serve some of the poorest and most vulnerable populations of children, the elderly, and families affected by the a devastating HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Nyumbani Award honors people and organizations behind the scenes that help make possible the wonderful things that happen in the Nyumbani programs. Rotary Club of DC and Rotary International have given generous support, shared our story, engaged others in our mission and have changed the lives of the children we serve year after year. We are grateful for all you have done in the background and would like to honor you and your organization for your commitment to our children and our mission.
