Welcome to the FIKISHA Family
FIKISHA’s vision is to transform outcast youth in the slum of Kawangware, Kenya. Living on the streets in unhealthy physically, emotionally and spiritually. FIKISHA aims to target those areas and bring restoration through mentorship, educational scholarships, ongoing care, meal programs and church services.
YOU ARE NOW A PART OF THAT.
As a registered 501.c.3. all donations are tax deductible. We strive to be honest, wise stewards of your gifts and take great care to ensure each dollar impacts transformation. Thank you for sharing in the mission.

*Partnership with Boy With a Ball
As mentioned above, FIKISHA has officially joined Boy With a Ball (BWAB) as a member organization!
This is similar to how Habitat for Humanity is set up. Currently there are five other member organizations as well as new developing teams and a vision to grow around the world. As part of being a member, 10% of all donations will be going towards BWAB Global, who in turn will provide FIKISHA with:
- An accountant who will handle all of the finances for FIKISHA
- A yearly conference in which two of our Kenyan staff will be covered to attend
- A new website
- Access to all BWAB resources, including a coming donor portal
- Weekly meetings for ongoing training and mentoring
- Online training toolkits
- Assistance in grant funding
- Site visits from BWAB Global Staff
- Valuable new networks and connections
The work of FIKISHA will be affected only in the positive, with better training, tracking and development.
Please note the following significant, logistical changes:
- Donations will be made through BWAB Global
- The FIKISHA 501(c)3 here in the United States will be dissolved
- We will be applying for NGO status in Kenya (We, USA, will have board representation)
How does this affect me? / Practical Steps
It is our intention that this union will increase your experience as a donor. Your valuable donation will still get to Kenya, but will go through Boy With a Ball Global.
If you normally send a check, please transition to making it out to Boy With a Ball and put either Fikisha or Kenya in the memo line and mail it to:
Boy With a Ball, PO Box 748, Buford, GA 30515
Online donations through Paypal will still be available on our website. If you have a recurring donation set up, you will need to go into your Paypal account, cancel that donation and set-up a new recurring donation through the links above.
Please contact us with any help you need or questions you may have. You can reach Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your prayers and support!
