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.
|2018 New Update||It continues to be an interesting, challenging, rewarding and evolving journey for us as we move into our eighth year. While itís 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.|
|2013 News Update||We have had a very busy year at Friends Vision with myself spending 10 months in Kenya to help lay the ground work for new projects and network within the local community (amongst many other things!). This year we employed two new staff members, saw volunteers, friends and family join us in Kenya to see our projects and welcomed some new children into our sponsorship program. We overcame many challenges that Kenya seems to throw at us at any given time and have slowly made progress on our existing projects getting us another step closer to building our first children's home. Have a read below of the year that was. I hope you enjoy and all have a great Christmas ahead!|
