Help for Orphans International is a non-profit organization
which provides superior education facilities and materials for
orphans around the world. The organization, currently working
with nine schools in Kenya which cater to children left
parentless by famine, civil wars, and the AIDS epidemic is
building new facilities as well as renovating existing ones.
More than 30 million children are orphaned throughout Africa.
Ms. Ehrlich had the recent honor of addressing attendees to “A
Conversation and Luncheon with Women of Color with Senator
Hillary Clinton” in Washington, DC.
Since its inception, HFOI is best known for providing in-depth
teaching programs throughout orphanages in Africa and India.
In the last eighteen months, HFOI has implemented teaching
programs, complete with textbooks and resources to schools in
nine Kenyan villages including Kisumu, Mbita, and Kisii.
Construction of a new school designed by AB Architekten in
Masai Mara will be built in ecological harmony with its
equatorial location, allowing maximum use of the sun’s energy
by way of rooftop photo volcanic cells.
