Who we are

Tuendelee Foundation is a not-for-profit organization committed to support its pool of beneficiaries to undertake quality tertiary education.

Tuendelee is a Swahili word for “let’s progress”.

At Tuendelee different persons and groups come together to collaborate. We believe that success hardly comes single-handedly. This is the reason our name is TUENDELEE. The TU, denotes the first person plural in Swahili “WE”. We do it together. It is not NIENDELEE (I progress) or UENDELEE (You progress) or AENDELEE (He/She progresses), but rather TUENDELEE(We progress together), as a team. We promote collectiveness and collaboration, because we believe that development succeeds where collaboration exists.

OUR VALUE SYSTEM

  • Tuendelee is a family

    You are born there, invited there or you find yourself there. But once you do get to Tuendelee, you stay there, because you become part of the family. Once you belong, you always will. Your role may change, e.g. from student to alumni, to staff or partner but the root remains; that you are family. And you are called upon to always have your family in mind (ask “What can I do to make my family better?”).

  • Tuendelee is about giving; willing, freely yet completely

    Once you join the family you’re called to contribute nothing, but what you can, you have and you want. But with these you give your all, wholeheartedly. Tuendelee focuses on 3Ts, Time, Talent and Treasure (i.e. your time, your skills and your resources). Whichever combination you choose, give it your utmost.

  • Tuendelee is bent on achieving

    The driving force is the list of goals set, with the timelines in mind. Focus with determination dictates our level of achievement and for which nothing but excellence is sought. We believe that what is worth doing; is worth doing exceedingly well.

  • Tuendelee embraces togetherness and team work

    At Tuendelee different persons and groups come together to collaborate. Success hardly comes single-handedly, or without the contribution of others. Our name is TUENDELEE. The TU, denotes the first person plural in Swahili – We do it together. It is not NIENDELEE (I progress) or UENDELEE (You progress) or AENDELEE (He/She progresses), but rather TUENDELEE (We progress together), as a team. We promote collectiveness and collaboration, because we believe that development succeeds where collaboration exists.
