We are Tiba
We are a foundation that believes access to quality health care is a basic human right.
Unfortunately, in Kenya, access to quality health care is not an option for most.
Tiba is changing that.
We partner with local Kenyan health care organizations and provide funding,
medical volunteers and strategic guidance.
Together, we are empowering and saving lives, and transforming the health care
landscape for thousands of locals in rural Kenya.
