The Mama Sarah Obama Foundation is a charitable nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the education and welfare of disenfranchised children in order to help them successfully achieve their goals and have a better future. MACHAO Orphanage has assisted these children during our annual service mission trip.
‘Come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away’. Yes, let's fly away to spend time with the children of MACHAO, work alongside them on projects, engage with the local community in Makueni, spend the day with Mama Sarah Obama in Kisumu, and finally relax on your day safari. Get ready to be transformed by the sites, sounds, tastes and most of all touch of beautiful souls. (Lyrics from Come Fly With Me - Writer(s): Sammy Cahn, Jimmy van Heusen; Performed by Frank Sinatra)
There are various ways you can change a child's life forever - from traveling with us to Kenya to hosting a quilt party. You can collect gently worn shoes in your neighborhood, school or work to having a garage sale.
