Our Story

Melodies Foundation (also known as Melodies Foundation Organization-MFO) is a Christian Non-Profit Organization that was established in 2009. Over the past 10 years, we have strived to make life better for orphaned children, widows and widowers; not forgetting the aged in Arujo Ward-Homabay, Kenya. Due to high HIV prevalence in this region, many children are orphaned. Therefore, we are on a mission to continually offer support to this growing number of orphaned children, widows, widowers and the aged.

One of our major objective is to have 41 households in Arujo Ward, Homabay county fully supported and empowered for sustainability by 2025. There are 150 orphans and vulnerable children in Arujo ward all putting up in the 41 households. Out of the 150 children; 30 are orphans who are supported in 7 households, 50 have single parents and they are supported in 20 households, 20 have aged care givers above 70 years all supported in 4 households and 50 have both parents but are under abject poverty-they are supported in 10 households.

MFO (Melodies Foundation Organization) aims to ensure that all these children remain healthy, safe, stable and schooled while the caregivers are given adequate economic empowerement to support their respective households. We strive to address the social determinants of health to improve the wellbeing of children orphaned and made vulnerable by HIV. Once they are healthy and safe, we preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to them with an aim of establishing them spiritually.

Project Objectives

In the absence of a coordinated intervention, these children and vulnerable households are at a risk of (a) not accessing quality health care (against HIV/AIDS and other diseases), (b) the caregivers would not afford to feed and sustain themselves, (c) the cases of teenage pregnancy, child abuse and children's rights violation would still be on the rise. Which is why we strive to:

  • Help them access quality medical care; we help them get NHIF cover which would help them access affordable healthcare.
  • Empower caregivers; giving them business grants and emergency cash transfers that help them start businessess for sustaining their households.
  • Make Christ known to all the children, caregivers and other vulnerable children by promoting spiritual awareness and teachings.
  • Keep the children and households safe by ensuring that they all have valid legal documents such as birth certificates and death certificates.
  • Offer a safe space/rescue center for vulnerable children, especially girls to avoid teenage pregnancy and abuse.
  • Provide scholarstic material to both primary school pupils and secondary school students to support their education.
