Friends of Yimbo

Friends of Yimbo (FOY) is a non-profit organization that works with the people of Yimbo Village in Western Kenya. Founded by Ben and Charles Odipo, FOY intends to further the efforts on behalf of the community begun by their father, Joseph, who passed away before realizing his principal goal of providing a fully functional primary school for the area. FOY continuously liaises with the local community to prioritize and realize other goals it identifies.
