Founder Message

Hello and welcome to the Sally Maina Foundation. I appreciate you for following our story and wanting to learn more about us. This foundation is named after, and dedicated in loving memory to my lifelong hero and inspiration- my beloved mum Sally Maina, called to new life on June 25th 2013.

I never in a million years imagined that my mum's death is what would push me to do what I’d always wanted to do; start a foundation or charity of some kind to reach out to the community. It was during my season of mourning and deep sense of loss that I chose to draw strength from a positive place to help me continue on. I’ve always had a passion especially for causes that strive to end world hunger, and those helping children or young adults. I have also been an avid supporter of the World food programme and Feed the Children initiatives.

I now endeavor on a personal level through this foundation to join others in this remarkable journey of making a difference to society, and as a way of continuing on my mum's great legacy that she left of loving, giving and caring for those around us in need especially the young ones.

I’m greatful for your support and contribution as we dedicate our efforts in this foundation to impact our communities in Kenya and help change lives for the better, one child, one family at a time.

God has given us resources and the ability to live comfortable lives. As it is with our human nature, we are often in endless pursuit of wealth, comfort, careers, investments, strategies for a good future and so on. While that is perfectly okay, it’s also important to step back, look around us and be thankful for what we have, who we are and how far we’ve come. We then step out of our comfort zone and extend out our hand to our less fortunate brothers and sisters, and those trailing behind us plagued by unfortunate circumstances and less favorable situations. We help them to the best of our ability. If not for simple humanitarian compassion, we are also heeding the call of God from his word, and fulfilling our duty of reaching out and Here at the Sally Maina Foundation, we will strive through our initiatives with support from generous donors and well wishers, to impact such lives positively. Each act of kindness goes a long way, and we can never have too much help. In addition to helping feed these children, enabling them access to education is helping them exercise one of their human rights- the right to education. It’s also a great way to secure their future, and a great investment for this next generation of world changers.

It is my desire, my prayer and the utmost joy of my heart that those who will be touched or helped through our programs will indeed draw strength for each day, and experience abounding hope and confidence for the future.

Please browse through the site and be more informed about our programs. I invite you to join us if you haven’t already, on this wonderful journey of faith, hope and love.

Thank you once again and blessings to you always.
