Tomorrow's Child Initiative (TCI) is a non governmental organization registered under the NGO Act of 1990 in Kenya. TCI was created in 2005. The vision of TCI is a society where children and women have unfettered access to opportunities, which allow them to live in dignity because their rights are respected and upheld.
TCI recognizes that poverty is a leading cause of disempowerment of women and by extension children, and that it opens doors for the abuse of their rights, in several forms. TCI interprets poverty broadly to also include inter alia, poverty of knowledge. Where poverty exists, there is a corresponding variable of lack of access to resources.TCI also acknowledges that any meaningful change must be the result of initiatives that are directly informed by those that live in these disadvantaged situations and the design of which they must participate in. TCI therefore works with and amongst the economically challenged to facilitate sustainable positive changes in the lives of the women and children that it targets in its interventions.
TCI programmes lay emphasis on education at all levels and all its programmes have the underlying objective of imparting knowledge to the specified targets.TCI, focuses on the right to education as a primary and central variable in her interventions seeking to contribute to the alleviation of poverty and the respect of the human rights of women, both of which are closely interlinked. In addition, TCI engages in advocacy for policy change at the national, regional and international levels and translates these for impact at the community level.
TCI is a learning institution that collaborates and partners with different actors at the international, regional and national levels in order to import best practices into her programmes, for the benefit of her target and also share her best practices with the collaborating organizations for their benefit. TCI believes that the highest levels of protection and respect of women's rights can only be attained through actions that complement one another, between individuals and across organizations, countries and continents.
