Our commitment

We are completely volunteer-run and 100% of your donation goes directly to the causes we support. Your treasure, time and talent are all invaluable.

Our motivation

There would be no FIOH-USA without the inspiring and diligent passion we've witnessed from those we serve. Can you relate to that passion?

Our story begins with their story...

It all began with a Boy named nevil

Everything in life has a story--and the beginnings of Future In Our Hands-USA is no different. In 2000 when Michele Sprada visited Kenya, she had no idea how much the trip would transform her life and that of her aunt, Sister Linda. When Michele returned to the States with news of the need to sponsor a young orphaned boy named Nevil Ochieng, Sister Linda was compelled to help. After all, the head of the orphanage had described Nevil as a bright boy who could excel if only he could afford his school fees. After months of supporting Nevil from afar, Linda and Michele traveled to Kenya to meet Nevil again, only to learn that he had passed away from an infection he contracted from drinking contaminated water. The story doesn't end there...

Our Causes

Missing school for one week each month is the reality for many young girls in Kenya and Zambia who do not have access to feminine products. We are determined to  end the stigma and the embarrassment that these young ladies face.
FIOH-USA helps provide micro loans for men and women who need capital to start or enlarge income- generating activities in their communities. Find our how we are empowering men and women to lift up their own communities.

Angelic Ark Centre is a temporary home for HIV+ or HIV impacted children. There is still great stigma in Kisii, Kenya surrounding HIV+ individuals. Many affected children are left as orphans. We help provide dignity and a safe space for these young children.

Future In Our Hands-USA has funded clean water projects in Africa since 2005. With the help of generous donations, we have funded the construction of over 20 wells throughout Kenya, providing a safe water supply to villagers.

Sponsoring students is how we first uncovered our purpose. We have seen students graduate and move on to work to support their families and their communities.

Nearly every month, we receive proposals from our African partners with requests for special projects–from famine to floods to pandemic relief, and everything in-between. With your help, we are able to help while maintaining our mission of creating sustainability within the communities we serve.

Help us create sustainable impact

There are many ways you can contribute your time, talent and treasures to helping FIOH-USA reach hundreds of people on need. Please consider getting involved.

Our Work In Action

In addition to near-daily phone and email communication, one or two FIOH-USA board members periodically travel to Kenya and Zambia--at their own expense--to get a firsthand look at the projects we're funding. Here are some of the memories we've made over the years.
