WE are doing?

The Mama Sarah Obama Foundation is the realization of a long-term dream. The foundation was founded after years of hard work helping orphans and poverty-stricken families feed and educate their children. With the AIDS epidemic ravaging Sub-Saharan Africa in the last three decades and leaving many children without parents, Mama Sarah turned her attention to addressing the educational and welfare needs of orphans in Kogelo village, Mama Sarah used her own resources and relentlessly worked with community leaders to meet the dire needs of these orphans. With the election of her grandson to the presidency of the United States of America, her phenomenal work has come to light well beyond the boundaries of Kogelo village. In 2009, the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation (MSOF) was formed.
