Tree Planting Ceremony

On Wednesday we had the grand opening of the new Computer Teaching Center that supports orphans and vulnerable children through IT classes as well as bringing in donations for Orphans Foundation Fund to continue the many projects throughout the country in development and relief efforts for kids. We moved from the new center, which is located at the main O.F.F. office complex, to the O.F.F. Njiro plot which will become the permanent training facility for the organization. The ceremonial tree planting signified the new growth and progress of Orphans Foundation Fund. If you would like to get involved and help make this plan a reality please contact us!

Vocational University Plans

Orphans Foundation Fund has made conceptual architectural plans for the Vocational University for orphans and vulnerable children. What we want to build would distinguish itself by it’s name, design, educational training system, equipment, teachers, and international support so that youth may be trained in various tradesĀ  and make them to become self reliant. We want to make a model for all other VTCs in the country to look up to and follow. You can help make this dream possible, please contact us. Click on the below photos to see the larger photos.

Rafiki Farming Project

Rafiki Child Care Center has been for some time now looking for ways to become sustainable. The first idea was to become a clean water distribution point for the town of Mererani, but after further consideration it wasn’t as needed because of the other Orphans Foundation Fund water project nearby. Thanks to Catherine Mulvale Rafiki had $5,000 on hand and asked if it could be used to make a farm. The staff and children have been hard at work on the new farm and reaping the results of fresh crops!
