Our Story

The Action Foundation was founded by Maria Omare in 2010 after her experience while volunteering at a sports camp organized by Special Olympics Kenya as a second year student at Kenyatta University.

Working with children living with various physical and intellectual disabilities opened her world to the realities of their lives and redefined her purpose. Her experience of growing up with a visually impaired close relative also cultivated her interest in matters disability.

Spurred by the support of like-minded social innovators, The Action Foundation was established with the goal of transforming the lives of children with disabilities and empowering their caregivers through various projects.
