When Lizzie founded Moyo, she wanted to bridge the gap between the resources of Seattle, her home, and Kenya, where she could see a vast unmet need. Having spent much time in Kenya, and following volunteer work in the Mugie Primary School, in combination with her desire to help a community she had fallen in love with, the seed of an idea was sewn. After long and careful discussion and deliberation with local charity/education/healthcare leaders, the idea of Moyo came slowly to light.
The Moyo Foundation is a strategically developed, project-based, humanitarian organization, aimed at supporting and bolstering existing programs and coordinating a handful of new supportive projects (read about them on our website). We are hoping that small steps can be taken to achieve, in time, a greater quality of life for all.
