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. 

Our Solution

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. 

Our 100% Promise To You


Every dollar you donate goes directly to the programs we support in Kenya


Our partners employ leadership and staff from local communities in Kenya


We measure and assess our investments, and visit local sites regularly

100% Commitment to Sustainability

In just 4 years, our partners in Kenya have gone from covering 12% of the hospital’s expenses to 87%


Tiba supports community healthcare projects in Siaya County, Nyanza Province, Kenya, with a focus in Ugenya District. All projects are conceived of and operated by local experts.
