OLPS Health Programs To effectively deliver health programs that respond to the needs of members of our community, OLPS emphasizes on integrated approach to health programming. Our health services are both facility and community-based. We run a community dispensary, mobilize resources and partner with like-minded organizations to make healthcare affordable to members of our community. As much as our health services are modeled within the context of HIV and AIDS, we also reach out to other members of the community with general healthcare needs Read more


OLPS Health Programming focuses on… HIV Care and Treatment (targeting children, adolescents and adults); Community TB Prevention and treatment; Maternal Child Health services; Reproductive Health Services; HIV Testing Services. None of these if offered in isolation. Our integrated approach ensures that we address as many needs as possible for any person coming into contact with any of health service provider.

Building Resilient Households

Building Resilient Households OLPS covers the spectrum of services for anyone affected by HIV/AIDS. In this context, we work to empower individuals to be self reliant and live a dignified life. Our aim is to ensure that we support households in such a manner that they will be able to provide for their basic needs such as education for their children, healthcare, housing, food and nutrition among others. The ultimate goal is to create resilient households able to withstand crisis, recover from them and adapt so that they can better withstand them.

Livelihood Strengthening through small business support

Livelihood Strengthening through small business support OLPS uses a microfinance model to loan out small amounts of money ranging from Kshs. 10,000.00 to Kshs 15,000.00 to women for business startups and business expansion. Training and mentorship is key to the success of the businesses. Priority is given to women because of their proven ability to manage their businesses and repay their loans promptly. A total of 150 women are currently supported by this program. Read more

Building resilient households through sustainable agriculture

Building resilient households through sustainable agriculture On a 4ha piece of land, OLPS is implementing a Community Farmers’ Education Program and targets local farmers with low input farming technologies. OLPS primarily promotes food security for women & children affected by HIV/AIDS and focuses on creating healthy and nutritional gardens and keeping livestock e.g. chickens to boost family income. These women were facilitated to form groups for peer-to-peer mentorship Read more

OVC Program

OLPS OVC Program Kenya has an estimated 2.4 million orphans and vulnerable children, about 50% of whom are orphaned due to the HIV/AIDS. Regions with high HIV burden (like Kisumu where OLPS majorly operates) therefore account for a higher percentage of OVC. Because of lack of proper care and protection, these children experience many forms of abuse, neglect and exploitation, a situation which undermines their ability to develop into productive and responsible adults. OLPS implements a comprehensive OVC program that ensures this doesn’t happen. Read more

OVC Programming approach

OVC Programming approach We implement a two-pronged approach to addressing the plight of OVC i.e. community-based and institutionalized care at OLPS Children’s Rescue Center. Priority is given to community-based care strategy but in situations where there is need for extreme care and protection, OLPS admits carefully selected OVC into its Rescue Center for a 1 to 3 year transitional care and support. During this period, a responsible adult/relative is sought and prevailed upon to offer support to such a child as his/her own once the child leaves the center.

Magdaline Akinyi

I lost my father at the age of 13. I was deeply hurt and confused. My father was buried in the same year I sat for my final primary school national exams, I knew I had to make my late father proud of me, my mother was still hurting, I had to give her, at least a reason to smile. I worked hard and managed to score 399 marks out of the possible 500 marks. We were over the moon because of the sterling performance but reality soon dawned on us; we lacked the funds for my secondary school education. My father had always been our provider and my mother, being a primary school teacher at the time and singly supporting my two older siblings who were also in secondary school had her pay slip greatly overstretched. She could barely support my siblings who were in high school and I also had to go to school, come what may. My mother approached a good number of government offices in vain; none of them was philanthropic enough to fund me through Secondary school. We were losing hope and time was not on our side as other students were already going to school as I waited for funds.

Two weeks after other students had already joined Lugulu Girls High School, my mother explained to me; amid sobs- she couldnt believe it. She had met a possible organization, Our Lady of Perpetual Support (OLPS), the director; Sister Anastasia Juma was more than happy to fund me through High school, thanks to my good performance. They wanted to have an interview with me and have a couple of photos to make it official. I was going to secondary school!

OLPS fully supported me in my four years in high school. My school fees were always paid in good time and I was always given text books for various subjects. The education office always kept me in check incase my performance dropped in any way and for that I will always be grateful.

At the end of my four years in Lugulu Girls, I managed to attain a mean aggregate of B of 66 points out of the possible 84 points, I then joined Moi University, Eldoret.

I joined Zawadi Africa Education fund, a non- governmental organization aimed at supporting bright and needy students through colleges in the US. I managed to get a scholarship to Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin via Zawadi Africa. I am going to double major in pre-medicine and business administration.

In the mean-time, my mother and I are trying to raise funds for my air-ticket, pocket money and clothes- especially winter clothes to ensure a smooth transition to college.

When one really wants something, the universe will conspire to make it happen. The OLPS staff and Zawadi Africa did it for me. I thank God daily for his mercies upon my life and the huge blessings that these organizations have been to me.

I believe that what we are is Gods gift to us and what we become is our gift to God, I intend to be the best I can be.
