Clean drinking water—you can’t live without it!

Uzima has their roots in Kenya and chose their name because it is the Swahili word that means “to be filled and overflowing with life.” Uzima is now a global organization with a variety of clean water solutions.  KOI has embraced the Uzima UZ-2 as our clean water solution of choice.

The UZ-2 Uzima water filter shown here is an all-in-one filtration system that quickly and effectively turns questionable water into clean water.  A single UZ-2 Uzima self-contained system can clean approximately 200 gallons of water per day. Each UZ-2 has an estimated useful life of 10 years. 

Clean water is one of the greatest challenges facing “the least of these” in most areas of the planet.  We chose Uzima because it is proven to reduce bacteria in water by 99.9999%.

The device has no moving parts to wear out and no consumable pieces that need to be replaced.  It is easily maintained by backwashing the device.

Your donation for an Uzima UZ-2 water filter will provide one of life’s necessities to a family or village that desperately needs it.   

Graduation day is a time for happiness and celebration!

Merit-based Scholarships

KOI has focused on providing educational scholarships to orphans and other abandoned children in Kenya for over a decade.

High School education is not a right in Kenya and is not free.  KOI scholarship awards are all-inclusive and include tuition, housing, transportation, books, supplies and meals.   

The majority of our scholarship awards have been for High School educations, but we occasionally provide full and partial support to students at the college and university level.

All scholarships are merit-based per Our Standards for Supporting Students.

Goats help families to help themselves

A single goat can make a big impact in the life of a family in Kenya or other countries.  For “the least of these” a goat can be the key to a family’s survival. 

Goats are hardy animals that reproduce quickly and can survive in most climates including harsh environments.  A single goat can produce up to 4 gallons of milk per day, allowing the family to enjoy milk, butter and cheese.  Extra milk can be sold to boost household income.

Additionally, goats can be an aid to family farming operations because their manure provides fertilizer and their grazing helps to clear the land for farming.  Make a difference, buy a family in need a goat!
