About us

Tunza” is a Kiswahili word meaning “to nurture or care for.” Women bear the greatest burden of reproductive health in society especially within the first 1000 days of bringing forth and nurturing life.

Tunza Mama Service

Given the shortage of Healthcare workers in Kenya, women have limited access to real-time and ubiquitous health solutions to pressing maternal and childcare needs.

Tunza Mama provides an opportunity for women to access essential maternal and child health services at their door step ( at the household or workplace) from competent care givers .

Tunza Mama is a health social enterprise intervention geared to increasing universal access to healthcare for women of reproductive age. The services are offered by qualified and licensed Perinatal Educators with backgrounds in registered Midwifery training from reputable institutions in Kenya.
