Our Vision and Goals
We aim to provide a stable foundation and links to community to create a holistic person-centred approach for each child in our programs.
We have a vision of creating opportunities to enable each child/young person to become ethical, successful, independent, productive members of Kenyan society. We approach our vision with central values of integrity and empowerment. We believe in accountability and honesty with those we work with; both those who entrust us to do our work with financial support and those we serve through our efforts. To date we have 41 children in our program with the first 3 graduating high school in 2017 entering our transition program.
Friends Vision is registered as a charity in Kenya and Australia (Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission), with Charity Tax Concession status and Deductible Gift Recipient status with the Australian Taxation Office.
|December 2018 Update|
|We have had another big year here at Friends Vision and although we’ve had some setbacks, we’ve also had many reasons to celebrate. In particular, we are always inspired by the many achievements of the children and young people we support. With increasing costs and floods wiping out most of our crops, we also need to continue to fundraise so read on to see what we have planned.|
|March 2018 Update|
|It continues to be an interesting, challenging, rewarding and evolving journey for us as we move into our eighth year. While it’s been around two years since my last update (so sorry), the wheels have still been turning over as we venture into new territory this year. Our focus on sustainability is in full force with some exciting new partnerships; we have gained tax deductibility status in Australia; welcomed new staff members and new children and had the first of our young adults finishing High School and beginning our transition program.|
|2015 News Update|
|All in all it has been a busy, exciting and challenging year for us at Friends Vision as we slowly move through some changes that have taken place within our organisation. Throughout the year we have welcomed new staff, gained our Kenyan NGO status, began our farming project and started to move towards a more sustainable future.|
