Sirio Project

The Sirio project was created and promoted by Commander Roberto Marinelli, Livingston Airways.

Roberto Marinelli usually flies on the Milano Malpensa - Mombasa Kenya route and once he saw the local situation he thought of something useful to help the children in that area.

After a few flights, he had the opportunity of meeting Ms. Joan Smith, founder of the TUMAINI CHILDREN'S HOME centre.

Children suffering from TBC and HIV lodge in this centre.

At the beginning, the help was "limited" to supplying children's clothing and purchasing food for the centre, but the commitment slowly became more substantial.

Later on, Roberto asked Joan if the allotment adjacent to and belonging to the Tumaini centre could be used to build a school for the children of the centre but also for those in the district.

This is the way the SIRIO PROJECT came to light.
