What "Tei wa Syana" meansThe library's name, "Tei wa Syana", was chosen by the group of women who are running the library project. They are members of the Kamba tribe and in their language, Kikamba, tei wa syana means compassion for the cry of the children. This group of mothers understands the challenges their children face and have compassion for them, and are taking action in response.
