Kenyan Outreach, Inc. is a 501(c)3 charity that was created to improve the lives of the people of Kenya.
KOI traces our roots to the vision of Pastor Peter Kaimathiri M’Tuamwari, who founded Kioni Generations High School in the Meru Kenya area in 2002 to provide educational opportunities for orphans and abandoned children.
Kioni High School was adopted as a mission project for East Cobb United Methodist Church in Marietta, GA in 2006. As the scope of mission increased, a separate entity dedicated to the needs of the people of Kenya was required.
KOI was conceived in 2011 and granted charitable status in 2013, allowing donations to be tax deductible per current IRS regulations.
In 2013 a decision was made to close the Kioni Generations High School due to declining enrollment. The declining enrollment was mainly the result of the proliferation of public schools in Meru County built by the Kenyan government.
KOI today provides merit scholarships as we continue to execute on our mission to enable African orphans and abandoned children the opportunity to get a high school education, thus leveling the playing field for “the least of these”.
