Focus Dream Center’s purpose is to raise funds to support sustainable community programs through evidence-based approaches that are effective and efficient. These programs provide educational, nutritional, and medical programs for orphans in Kenya as well as providing for providing for water and sanitation for the community at large.
The need is very great.
I was born and grew up in central Kenya facing challenges like any other child in our village. Accessing education, medical health, clean water and sanitation, shelter, food and nutrition and livelihoods skills were a challenge. This challenge bothered my heart and pushed me to dream for a better future. My Dream came true when I immigrated to the USA, Glory Be to God Almighty.
In 2002 I formed a Kenyan nongovernment organization called F.O.C.U.S. (Families, Orphans, Children Under Stress). This was formed as a response to the social and economic challenges faced by families, youth, children and communities at large with an overriding interest in HIV/AIDS and its social economic impact. We have made much progress in Kenya with the building of an orphanage in Ruiru, and programs to help the children there.
In 2016 I formed a US-based non-profit organization called FOCUS Dream Center. This was done to support the work of the original FOCUS center in Ruiru, Kenya. and to increase our ability to help more children in Kenya.
I am a Pastor, currently with Liberty Church in Shrewsbury, MA.
F.O.C.U.S. (Families, Orphans, Children Under Stress) is a Kenyan nongovernment organization which was formed by Samuel Kariuki in 2002. Formed as a response to the social and economic challenges faced by families, youth, children and communities at large with an overriding interest in HIV/AIDS and its social economic impact.
F.O.C.U.S recognizes that this crisis will persist for decades and we believe a conscious shift in our attention and efforts can help alleviate the suffering and pain many of them face daily. Our Dream and prospects are for a better and brighter future for these communities. Recognizing the interest worth of each individual focus accept the responsibility to protect, advocates and promote the wellbeing of these communities.
By these programs we will achieve our goal:
1 : Education
3: Water and sanitation
4: Food and Nutrition (Humanitarian)
5: Leadership development and Empowerment
Please join the journey in making the dream come true changing one life at a time.
