SADO Foundation has its genesis at the grassroots of the community. From a small village in Kisii County, Kenya and Mathare slum village in the heart of Nairobi City, an idea was hatched by a small number of men and women to better their lives. As the needs of the members grew, so was the need to be more visionary. Due to increase demand for better services and more outreaches, SADO, a community based organization was formed in 2016. This CBO was mandated to better the livelihood of not only the registered members but also the community around it. Poverty had been identified as a saboteur to development, orphans are increasingly becoming a concern and widows are also increasing in number due to HIV prevalence.
Disability has seen in part of the society has not been treated as a normal phenomenon within the society thus most disable childrens’ have not been given the privileges to attend school and even play as per there age mates.
The organization has brought hope to the disable families by ensuring that they are recognized within their communities by ensuring that they attend school and participate in key activities within the society.
Poverty coupled with orphan and increased number of widows has affected the level of literacy and as seen cases of increased adolescents’ pregnancy, child headed families and abandonment of children that has led to upsurge in the number of street children’s. SADO embraced these vulnerable groups and mobilized the community to help alleviate the wanton suffering. School going children had little or no educational support, widows had poor shelter, some had none at all and food was scarce to many of this group. SADO provided basic needs for poor families, school uniform for needy orphans and school fees for destitute children.
