WHAT WE DO

Environmental Conservation

Kenya is well endowed with abundant flora and fauna whose economic and aesthetic value cannot be overemphasized. Over the years, we have witnessed serious depletion of ecosystems through wanton destruction of habitats and poaching of endangered wildlife species such as the rhino.

If measures are not taken, this behavior will negatively impact tourism which is a major foreign exchange earner for the country and also destroy our natural heritage.

We aim to support community, county and national programmes and initiatives that conserve endangered wildlife species and ecosystems.

Our aim is to have a country where integrated environmental management offers sustainable livelihoods. To achieve this, we will forge a working relationship with relevant institutions to increase sustainability of ecosystems. We also aim to support efforts to manage wastes.

Social And Economic Empowerment

Education

We uphold the principle that “everyone’s equal and has a right to life”. This principle has been the impetus behind the assistance that the Foundation gives to some of the disadvantaged members of our communities. Basic necessities required for life and education are provided by the Foundation. This support to education is seen as the main commodity needed by today’s generation. Education open doors and shed rays of opportunities, propelling the person forward.

Since its launch in 2006, the Miller Foundation (Kenya) has enabled a number of disadvantaged students to return to or stay in school. Our Education Fund ensures that social and economic circumstances of a student do not limit his/her ability to acquire education. In addition to school fees, the Education Fund offers stipends and other school related materials required in school. The beneficiaries are therefore able to learn without any interference.

The Foundation also endeavors to strengthen the capacity of institutions to provide quality education through provision of learning and infrastructural resources.

Health

A healthy society is in a better position to actively participate in social and economic activities of its nation. The Foundation, therefore seeks to mitigate health issues of persons in dire circumstances. To achieve this, the Foundation has in the past collaborated with relevant stakeholders to ensure that health crisis is addressed by supporting such ventures.

It also partners with various institutions to assist needy individuals who require emergency assistance in order to save their lives by paying their bills. We will also work with communities and institutions that promote preventive health services by supporting attitude and behavior change.

Livelihood Support

Ultimately, the Foundation envisions community members economically empowered to manage their livelihoods to the extent of generating enough income to cater for their basic needs by becoming self-reliant.

We aim to improve household income by providing opportunities to entrepreneurial but needy community members to start or scale up small business enterprises and other income generating activities. This improves their self-reliance and reduces over dependency on well-wishers.

Social Assistance

The Foundation has a history of supporting orphaned and vulnerable children and women in correctional facilities. The Miller Foundation (Kenya) works hand in hand with orphanages and related institutions to uplift the lives of vulnerable children.

The Foundation wholly subscribes to the belief that Children are the leaders of tomorrow and therefore caters for the educational needs of children in the orphanages. It works towards bringing to fruition the Children’s Rights embedded in the Constitution of Kenya and relevant international agreements.

Other social service include supporting the development of social amenities such as churches and humanitarian aid in large scale emergencies and natural disaster.
