Our team in Kenya
The OKE Foundation works closely with the MES committee, our partner organization in Kenya.
The MES committee consists of 7 Kenyan volunteers from Sondu and surroundings, who are well aware of the circumstances of the children and their families.
They maintain close contact with schools. The Knife Committee selects candidates who are eligible for sponsoring in consultation with the OKE Foundation.
They check the learning performance of the sponsored children and keep an eye on their health. They also ensure the purchase of uniforms, books, shoes and other items that are required to be admitted to secondary school.
There is regular meeting. The accounting is controlled by an independent accountant.
