Tiny Totos is building a network of market-based, independent, childcare providers in East Africa that provide stable livelihoods to owners, peace of mind to working mothers and nurturing care to the children they look after
Tiny Totos is a Kenyan social enterprise working since 2014 to ensure that all children can access quality early learning and care, no matter their income
We do this by turning informal babysitters into childcare businesswomen.
Training, access to capital, network and technology delivers improved care to children and profitable childcare centres.
We tap into local networks and market demand, avoiding dependency and promoting self-agency
Our practical, user-focused social franchise model for transforming community-based childcare is prime for scale and replication.
