August 2011 was when Mission Initiative was born, bringing in like minded people who like to contribute and help those in need and be a part of an initiative to tackle projects around the world.
The initial panel was created consisting of Eric Ho, George Vong, and Todd Wearn, through contacts of Qianhan Xiong who introduced team Initiative to an area in Western Kenya.
We came across a local area called Mount Elgon and we found that there were kids stranded on the streets without homes, without anyone to love and care for them or to provide them with an education, let alone a future. So we took on a piece of land and we put together an orphanage and we found our local team to run the project and caretakers to look after the kids, to provide food, care and love.
This is when we met Paulyviah Grean, who is now our Administrative manager within the YoYo Orphanage. We managed to create a home for 63 beautiful orphans.
