Future in Our Hands – USA , is a 501c3 non-governmental organization created in response to the dire needs of the poor in Kenya. FIOH-USA funds social and economic projects that foster human dignity and sustainable development in East Africa. We have close and personal relationships with those we serve.
Founding members of FIOH-USA, Buffalonians, Michele Sprada and Sister Linda Glaeser, SSJ, traveled to Kenya for several summers and worked closely with FIOH – Kenya. Through their first hand experience of seeing extreme poverty in Kenya and the good work that FIOH – Kenya had started, they realized that much more needed to be done. They responded by founding FIOH – USA in order to give generous individuals an opportunity to participate in the fight against poverty in Kenya and other locations around the world. FIOH-USA does not give people hand-outs. Every program and project is designed to assist the recipients to be able to earn a living and independently support themselves and their families.
