1. Take care of Orphans and Widows
Orphan welfare is a repetitive theme in our society. We at Harun Otwoma Foundation is encouraging good treatment of orphans and creating a sense of responsibility towards orphans.
Of all people who need our understanding, sympathy, and help, widows and orphans need them most. A widow with little or no support often suffers a lot or is at a disadvantage. If she has children the problem becomes acute and the situation precarious.
We have partnered with Mama Sarah Obama organizations to focus on the needs of widows and orphans and place them in a worthy situation with shelter, food and other basic needs. The foundation (SOWO) has database of thousands of widows and orphans who need our care and support.
Harun Otwoma Foundation urges us to do everything in our power to help the orphans and widows. That means not only material help but also help with their worldly affairs.
2. Take care of the seniors
These are old and needy mothers and fathers who have been left unattended to and fall into illness without any close relationship next to them. Our Foundation has taken responsibility to identify such cases support them through medical care, give them comfort and feed them as well as provide for them shelter. Harub Otwoma Foundation is aiming to open a home that will bring all such individuals under one care and give support as they age.
An old person needs extra care and sympathy. All of us, sooner or later, are likely to get old. On becoming old we feel troubled and even develop a bad temper, or simply feel very bad or worry about our condition among other things.
3. ARID AND SEMI ARID AREAS
Go-Green Samburu County
Adopt a tree Plant a tree and give it water.
Arid and Semi Arid Land takes almost 80% of land that we have in Kenya, yet this part of nature is not paid much attention. We notice these are the most disadvantages areas where there is no trees, no water, no serious farming is done.
The are a number of projects which refer to taking care of trees. “Whenever we plant a tree, they will earn the reward of charity because of the food that comes from it; and likewise what is stolen from it, what the wild beasts eat out of it, what the birds eat out of it, and what people take from it is charity for them” Harun Otwoma Foundation is focusing on the arid and semi arid areas which have been abandoned and negated in Kenya. These are areas that no tree is seen, hence no water and therefore causing pastoralist to fight over cattle in search of greener pastures. We focus on planting of trees to attract rains, therefore bring in water in such areas for cattle and people to live in Harmony and peace. Without water there is no life. We want to bring in life in such areas therefore creating more sustainable projects that will include resource centers and give in room for residents to have economy grow in the Samburu. We shall dig Dams, ensure trees are planted within the urban areas of the county and therefore create human responsibility by taking care of them up to maturity.
The numbers of neglected boy and girl child in the society is fast increasing. We as Harun Otwoma Foundation have identified that where war occurs, the woman, boy and girl child are displaced and homeless. We are focusing on war zone areas and bring in peace through women leadership, groups and other forums that can identify themselves as support groups for peace. We have work together with advocacy groups that focus on peace to strengthen our goal and therefore enlightened citizens on peace and its importance. We shall endeavor to have workshops and seminars for abused women, girls, boys and seniors to foster peace. Without peace a nation is broken there shall be no security and no leadership. We want peaceful nations where peace is given a chance and priority.
Where widows and women have been displaced through war, harun Otwoma Foundation is keen to ensure there is shelter that goes along way to take care of the children as well. We are keen to provide shelters to homeless individuals and ensure they have a roof over their heads and a place they can call home and feel homely.
