The Chebagogo Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization committed to improving the quality of life of AIDS-impacted orphans in Kenya. We seek to provide unconditional assistance to all AIDS orphans in Kenya, regardless of religious background, culture, or gender. The goal of our foundation is to encourage and facilitate the development of these children into upstanding and contributing members of their respective communities. We aim to achieve this by fostering these children's fundamental needs, including, but not limited to: education, food, and housing.
Headquartered in Seattle, WA, our primary operation is located in the town of Eldoret, Kenya. We currently operate in a staffed, temporary housing unit that provides shelter, individual care, clothing, and meals for twelve children, while placing them in nearby schools for education.
Currently, all donations go directly to the children under our care. Due to facility and financial restrictions, we are not able to care for AIDS infected orphans, only those otherwise adversely affected. However, we will soon be launching our first large campaign in order to raise money in order to move forward with our plans
to build a vocational school complete with boarding facilities and small-scale agrarian operations.
It is our hope that our programs will become entirely self-sustaining, The primarily vocational programs at our envisioned school will be taught by former students with the administration of the facility being overseen by former students as well. The school's academic onus will be on vocational disciplines pertinent to the geographic dynamic of southwest Kenya, giving these young people the greatest opportunity to reinvest
and contribute to the highest degree, in their local economies and communities.
