Mama Sarah Obama Foundation (MSOF)

Mama Sarah Obama Foundation PhotoGrandparents raising orphans has become common place in many sub-Saharan communities.  Seeing the extraordinary barriers these orphaned children faced, Mama Sarah Obama decided to roll up her sleeves and do whatever she could for orphans in her community.  She started with feeding programs, then adopted several orphans and eventually established the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation.

The Foundation’s mission is to improve the education and welfare of disenfranchised children in order to help them successfully achieve their goals and have a better future.  Today, Mama Sarah has developed a vision for her legacy that will build upon her actions, accomplishments and resources to make a lasting impression on the causes she believes in.  This vision is being implemented through her work at the Foundation, and includes the construction of an Early Childhood Development Center, Rehabilitation of a Primary and Secondary School, Construction of a Medical Center, and Establishment of the Mama Sarah Scholarship Fund.
