Ann Fort Kenya Fund

As a 74 year old widow, Ann Fort embarked on her first trip to Kenya.  Returning 19 times, this incredible woman has built a magnificent living legacy of schools, water projects, churches, orphan care, and medical assistance.  

Learning of the Ann Fort Kenya Fund, she wrote "my mind danced through the night!  Maybe a street youth could learn a trade; someone will go to college; perhaps someone will get needed glasses, or maybe even a goat (pregnant, of course!) could be given to a family to start a little business!  So many 'maybes' - so many 'dreams.'  And all because you care.  Bless you!"

Ann confers with the first woman elected a bishop of any church in Kenya.  Bishop Catherine Mutua supervises in her country the implementation of the

Ann Fort Kenya Fund.

People in Kenya call Ann "MaMa Kenya," because of the depth of her love and care for people

of all ages.

The Fund supports AIDS orphans in elementary & secondary school. Above are those AIDS orphans that are now Ann Fort Scholars excelling as

post-secondary students.
