The Fred Outa Foundation is a non-demoninational organization founded in
2006 and is devoted to improving the lives of orphans. Specifically, the foundation works with orphan children who live
in Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. This is the largest slum in Africa and is the area featured in the film "The
Constant Gardener" and in Christine Amanpour's documentry on CNN "Where Have All The Parents Gone".
Currently the foundation is working on raising money to build a girls' high school in Kenya. Many girls in Kenya do not continue education past the middle grades and are married at a young age. Once the high school is built the girls will be able to continue their education in a safe environment. In addition, the school's goal is to empower the girls so that they can thrive and become future leaders in society. As a result, the girls will be taught the skills necessary to live on their own.
Fred Outa Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization
PURPOSE AND GOALS
To support the work of Mr. Fred Outa through his non-governmental organization Valley African Centre as is registered with the Kenyan Government, specifically:
1. To help provide school supplies, food and medicines for the students of Spurgeons Academy located in Kibera Slum, Nairobi, Kenya
2. To raise monies to purchase land for the building and maintaining of a girls high school.
This high school would be a place of learning for girls who live in Kibera
and want the opportunity to continue their education
3. To maintain the high school once built and to provide uniforms, desks, books and
learning equipment needed to run such a high school
4. To assist with food, medicine, and stipends for teachers of the girls high school once built
When boys at Spurgeons Academy do well academically, they have an opportunity to continue their education. The girl child in the slum is usually sold to older men so that the family can aquire money for food and living. If the girl child is not sold, her role is to spend her days looking for food or to care for siblings or sick parents. The Fred Outa Foundation is dedicated to raise the monies needed to buy land and build a high school so the girls can get an education. With an education, the girls can hopefully escape the cycle of poverty for themselves and their offspring.
