Friends of MEDF

"With sustainable family livelihoods comes the ability for us to reach out to the less advantaged in our communities. When you have no food in your cupboard you cannot open your door and your heart to the poor around you and offer them help. By raising the quality of life for our families, the quality of life will also rise for the entire village. The Mitathato Education and Development Fund will also work as an Umbrella Organization to support local community groups do their good work; and there are many.

With the help of our people, our greatest resource and with the support of both Government and our Donors, we hope to accomplish a great deal here in the village of Mitahato, the District of Kiambu and the Country."
