The Daphne Selfe Foundation is something I’ve wanted to do for sometime now. My own time for giving with a vision to change peoples lives for the better, which I hope I’m doing already with my work, but I wanted to do something for those in a less fortunate position than many of us find ourselves. A Foundation seems the perfect way to do this. This way I will have a selection of charitable projects than I feel reflect my own principles and outlook which I can partner with.
OKM is a relationally based partnership working together to give orphans a Face, a Family and a Future. OKM focuses on families, not institutions. Orphans and vulnerable children are freed from the stigma and prejudice of labels such as “AIDS Orphan” as they become valued members of a new family. Family and extended family are vital in bringing change and hope to these children throughout their lives.
OKM supports African families they know personally who have adopted orphans. Currently partnering with Ugandan families who began responding to the needs of those infected and affected by HIV and AIDS.
