We support an ecosystem of diverse community health initiatives on Mfangano Island, Lake Victoria, Kenya.

    Mfangano Ultra Marathon!

    On August 10th, OHR Volunteers Lily and Michael successfully completed the mountainous 30-mile run around Mfangano Island! With a group of their fit Kenyan friends they ran together to support the higher education of Mfangano.

    “It took over 3 hours, running past cows, goats and monkeys, up and down rocky hills in some serious African heat, but we did it!”

    More importantly, with your generous help, we raised a total of $4,239 to support two full ride 4-year scholarship for talented Mfangano youth!

    “We can’t thank you enough for supporting our grueling run and the Mfangano people thank you for promoting higher education in their community.”

    While our fundraising goal has been met, please feel free to contribute to the Organic Health Response’s EK scholarship program if you are interested. Located in the most HIV prevalent region in Kenya, Mfangano Island has no shortage of orphaned students struggling to pay school fees.
