Shining Hope for Communities

SHOFCO was created in 2004 by the Kenyan Kennedy Odede, who grew up in Kibera, one of the largest slums in Africa where he experienced extreme poverty, violence, lack of opportunity, and deep gender inequality. The action started with the Kibera’s first free school for girls.
As the cause of extreme poverty is not a singular issue, but rather a complex web of systems and barriers, SHOFCO provides thoughtfully designed services to individuals residing in urban slums in Kenya.
