Our Mission & Vision
Children are our focus
We envision a world where each child has the opportunity to literacy, social and economic empowerment and spiritual nourishment for a better tomorrow.
Mission & Purpose
To uplift the local community through support of the OVCs by introducing programs aimed at providing education, vocational training, spiritual mentorship, healthcare, food and shelter to achieve a responsible, socially and economically empowered individual.
News & Updates
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
