FINDING A BETTER WAY TO GIVE BACK
to our communities

How will you make your mark?



In an attempt to touch lives beyond our borders, the U.S. Venture/Schmidt Family Foundation supports a partnership with Victory Community Development Center (VICODEC), a community center located between Kware and Gataka slums in Ongata-Rongai, Kenya. VICODEC provides local children from these slums with an education, nutrition and medical care to help them grow and succeed in spite of horrific living conditions. You can join us in helping the children of Kenya through an individual child sponsorship.

$300 annual child sponsorship covers:

  • Tuition, school uniforms, fees and books 
  • Feeding program (breakfast and lunch - often a child's only reliable daily meal)
  • Basic healthcare at the clinic for the child and their family
  • Guardian resource assistance
  • Sponsorships are open to the general public

With VICODEC's assistance, the benefits of your sponsorship will follow the child as they move through the African School System - directly impacting the lives of the child’s family members and aiding a community where poverty is so prevalent and the needs are so great.

If you're interested in child sponsorship, please view the profiles of children who are currently in need of a sponsor. If you’d like to help, complete a sponsorship form and return, along with a check to: Kenya Works c/o U.S. Venture Attn: Pam Swick 425 Better Way - Appleton, WI 54915
