Eunice Kariuki, a formerly homeless mother of two, experienced her share of struggles on the streets of Denver. Now, she's making sure other children don't have to endure the same.
"What I wanted to offer the children was hope," she told the news source. "So I came up with the name Tumaini, and Tumaini means hope."
Kariuki had moved to Denver to live with her cousin following a divorce, and three weeks to the day she got there, that cousin was killed in a car accident.
With nowhere else to turn, Kariuki got help from a Denver ministry that assisted her with rent and gave her a job, 9news.com reports.
"You know what a privilege it is to make a difference in the life of a child," Kariuki said.
"We are grateful," she added. "We are grateful."
