About Us -Omega Foundation Kisumu

Omega Foundation is a local non-governmental organization registered in 2001 and currently operates with a national focus primarily to promote health and build livelihood support systems in Nyanza,Western and parts of Rift Valley provinces.Health is our focus and since HIV/AIDS constitutes the greatest challenge to socio economic development and poverty reduction in these target provinces,HIV response forms the centre piece of Omega Foundation's ongoing work and may assume even greater significance in future.

We work in a region with the highest HIV prevalence and one of the highest poverty levels in Kenya. This complex mix of poverty and HIV/AIDs creates high rates of orphan hood and increased vulnerability of children and women. Harmful cultural practices that infringe on rights of PLWHs, OVCs and widows are common in the beneficiary communities.

Omega Foundation’s activities include;

  • Provision of comprehensive home based care (HBC) services for at least 28,000 People living with or affected by HIV/AIDS (PLWA) over five year period in Nyando, Muhoroni, Kadibo and Winam Divisions.
  • Strengthening mechanism for referral of HBC clients and newly identified HIV +ve patients to ART and other services
  • Provision of Voluntary Counselling and Testing (VCT) for HIV using multiple approaches including Door to Door testing,
  • Support Income Generating Activities (IGA) by widows, orphans, PLWA and foster carers.
  • Support for programme for orphans and other vulnerable children.
  • Lobby and advocate for expansion of services to address unmet needs of PLWA, widows and OVC.
