We are primarily made up of athletes and alumni of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs Cross Country and Track and Field programs. This all began after a small group of athletes spent three weeks in Kenya, where we were inspired by the incredible people we met and things we saw. Our mission is to lift children in the community of Kaptagat, Kenya out of poverty by increasing their educational opportunities.
We host community events in and around Colorado Springs and accept donations to help maintain our five main programs:
There are many ways to get involved with all the good stuff going on here at the Harambee Foundation!

If you're interested in sponsoring a child through secondary school or volunteering to teach in Kenya, or if you simply have ideas for us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
