About Us

Fountain of Hope Youth Initiative Group is a member of Global Health Council

Our History

In 2003 a group of young people, headed by James Waruiru, came together with the common purpose of fighting for the rights of widows and orphans left behind after the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS. Fountain of Hope was founded after many were personally impacted by witnessing the trauma of those suffering and dying from AIDS. In some towns people could count daily the numbers of new widows and orphans. Women often lost their husbands’ homes and processions after they passed on. With the loss of their bread winners, the women and children were left without any means of providing for their daily needs and hunger became a constant struggle.

Through the support of private donors, Christian mission’s organizations, and the Kenyan government FOH is able to provide the widows, orphans, marginalized & indigenous communities with basic food necessities, material support and the most vital: spiritual and psychological support.

Our driving power is compassion, love, concern and the urge to fulfill Gods will as clearly prescribed in his word, The Bible in the book of James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before* God the Father* is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

Our mission

Provoke discussion on HIV/Aids. Fight against further spread of HIV/Aids. Fight stigma & discrimination on people living with HIV/Aids. Advocate for the rights of children, widows and the indigenous communities. Curb degradation of environment.

Our vision

To serve as a fundamental tool for eradication of all negative vices facing our society including all violation of Human Rights. Contribute towards achievement of Kenya’s Vision 2030 & Millennium Development Goals.


“We cannot do great things on this Earth, only small things with great love.”

By Mother Teresa.

Our values

1. Compassion
Driven by compassion we care for the needy by providing both material and psychological support

2. Responsibility
We strongly believe that if every able person chooses to take up the role of caring for the needy even with a minute resource available to oneself the world will be a better place. We therefore do not leave everything to the government; we carry out our task with sense of responsibility.

3. Transcendence
We believe that spirituality is a vital personal resource

4. Networking & collaboration
Motivated by an African Swahili saying that states “one finger cannot kill a lice”, (kidole kimoja hakiuwi chawa) we believe in working with other organizations with similar objectives as ours.

5. Advocacy
We inform the public the need to care for the needy and that it’s our joint obligation.

6. Non discrimination
We do not discriminate on basis of gender, faith, health status, physical disability, orientation or any peculiar situation.

FOHLC is registered by the Kenyan government under the Ministry of Culture and Social services as a social support organization.

FOHLC relies on donations from individuals, companies and organisations. We kindly ask for your support to enable us carry on this noble, Godly and humanitarian cause.
