About Tuko.co.ke

Hello Tuko Family,

6 years ago we started sharing untold stories and through your support, we have impacted millions of lives together. Knowing we have a global community out there that loves and supports our work makes all the difference.

We never hoped to get this far, but now our gut tells us that we need to push further and invest even more time and effort to fulfill our mission. We believe everyone deserves equal access to quality journalism, at a time when factual reporting and showing real Kenyan life is critical. We have never been influenced by any millionaire owner or politician. We are influenced by you and work for you.

That is why we are inviting you to support our bald ambition of changing lives for the better and becoming the voice of the unheard: join our Patreon programme by donating as little as 3$ per month. Every Patron that joins helps us stay afloat and start working towards new projects. There are so many untold stories that you can help us share :)

Kevin Momanyi, Ann Nyathira Kamau, Lily Mwangi, Edwin Ochieng, David Muriithi, Eucabeth Mukami, Bebeto Ogutu and all TUKO.co.ke team

TUKO team is on a mission to help cancer survivor Ruth Wanjiku. 

She was only 16 when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The doctor suggested amputation of her right leg, but cancer had spread to her lungs.
Doctors gave her 25 days to live but she never surrendered!

Today Ruth is living with one leg and one lung. Being the sole bread winner for her five siblings and her grandmother, she has been forced to work as a taxi driver and a hawker.

She is an angel and deep within her sternum beats a heart of gold. She drives cancer patients in her Uber for chemotherapy sessions at her own cost.

Make an impact on Ruth's life! Donate to help this amazing survivor!
