Our History

The Dolfine Korando Faith Foundation began as a Widows and Orphans women group in 1997. The group was formed by 10 widows and 5 orphans coordinated by Mrs. Dolfine Oliech (Mama Dolfine) and aimed to solve problems of widowhood, orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs). 

1997 – 2006

In order to achieve this goal, the group founded a CBO and empowered the beneficiaries by providing income-generating activities to widows and education to OVCs. 

2006 – 2013

A non- formal ECD and primary school was then set up in 2006, adding to a boarding program of the most vulnerable kids staying within the center. 

2013 – 2018

In 2013 the CBO was transformed into an NGO with a keen interest in the provision of education, basic needs, and loving care.

2018 – 2020

In 2018 the school was registered as an APBET (Alternative provider of basic education and training) and DKFF has since grown its wings by accommodating more children into the program and getting more involved in other empowering activities. Currently, we reach 327 children within the community through our school and Bursary program. According to our holistic approach, we provide mentorship, vocational training, and community empowerment in addition to formal education.

Our Beliefs & Values

We are guided by a set of belief and values that ensure we maximise the impact we have on transforming the lives of the child and creating for them a better tomorrow


 Everything begins and ends with love. We operate under the umbrella of unconditional love, teaching, counselling, and providing care with love.


  We are keen to nurture faith in our children in order to achieve their spiritual nourishment.


  We uphold equality in ensuring all the children must be treated fairly and with dignity and allowed to access to quality education,  basic needs  and loving care.


 Working with children and individuals from various backgrounds, we appreciate and embrace their perspectives, approaching them from a point of love and genuine concern.  


 We are committed to ensuring transparency in all our activities and spending according to our yearly budget. This means the organization is usually audited every year to maintain trust and confidentially between our various donors and us.

“For me, the child comes first, we have to ensure our children have a brighter tomorrow and a future to look at “

– Mama Dolfine

Our Founder: Mama Dolfine



The Dolfie Korando Faith Foundation was founded by Mama Dolfine. She was a government-employed teacher for 20 years until she lost her 14 and 27 year old sons in 1996 within just one year. This very traumatizing experience brought her to depression followed by a premature retirement.
As she was staying at home, she started taking care of the first five orphans Miskela, Lucy, Isiah, Brenda and Kennedy; that gave a new meaning to her life. More of them started coming, finding shelter and care with her, but also food and financial support to be send to public school.
In 2006 she opened her own non-formal school to accommodate even more children and reduce the increasing cost of school fees. Her husband Patrick became the headteacher of the new school and supported her greatly throughout the years.
Then in 2014 she had to handle another huge loss when her husband Patrick passed away.
Though life left it’s scars, it didn’t stop her. And today, at 68 years old, she keeps on pushing through challenges for those children in need, and has touched well over 1000 lives already.
