My name is Anne and am one of this beneficiary of MFFO . They supported my education while i was at the orphanage till college . They showed me love , care and mentored me to be a great woman who is currently a kindergarten teacher. I am still part of the orphanage and i have learnt how to give back since they are my inspiration because of this selfless noble job they do in helping to educate a girl .

Audrey Forshey Thank you Anne for your support. Anne is one of the first orphans that MFFO supported from the beginning 12 years ago. Now Anne is a college graduate and kindergarten teacher. She regularly visits the orphanage to encourage and help the younger girls still living there. Anne is an amazing young woman and we are better for having her in our lives.

My name is Gisela John and I have supported “Hannah” for at least eight years. I had a chance this year to finally meet her. MFFO.org has used my donations over the years 100% for education which is their mission for these beautiful girls at St.Monica Orphanage in Kenya. I will continue to support their good work.

Mothers Fighting For Others provides orphaned girls with a loving and nurturing environment and a quality education, so they can learn, thrive and achieve their highest potential. The Gift of Education is an ongoing project to help pay for school fees and school requirements to orphans who do not have this opportunity. I have been a part of this amazing group of women over many years and have been blessed to have been able to see see the passion, love, and dedication these girls put in to work hard to achieve their goals.
Many of the girls have gone on to be successful and thriving young women who also want to make a difference. Our selfless and dedicated leader Audrey June Forshey has always instilled in us that you don’t have to begin with exact knowledge of WHAT the difference is that you intend to make. It’s enough simply to know that you want to make a difference.

I have been involved with this charity for about a decade. I have witnessed the good work this nonprofit does in africa to educate and simply love these children. These children have learned that love can cross cultures and miles. MFFO not only supports the children through education but also empowers them to take hold of their future and believe they too can make a difference.

Many of the girls go to College, University or trade schools once they graduate from high school, MFFO is really making a difference. This organization is run by volunteers with big hearts willing to visit Kenya every year on their on dime to make sure these girls are receiving an education, housing, clothing and health care. Please share this Charity with your friends.

By helping these wonderful girls acquire an education we can give them the chance to get beyond the traditional limitations of their culture. I love helping these girls go to school.

Mothers Fighting for Others is an incredible charitable organization with a wholly selfless mission. In the United States, we too often take education and wealth for granted. It is not until you see some of the things the women with Mothers Fighting for Others see, that you can truly understand the needs in other parts of the world. Mffo seeks to give girls in poverty the education they need to live the lives they fully deserve!

Mothers Fighting for others is an amazing organization focused on educating children. As human beings we need to learn to give back to mother earth. What better way to do that than to give the gift of education to the non privileged. I have seen the love and dedication of the organizers and the genuine care they have for the children. You know very well when the gift you give is given directly for the needs and education of the children, when you see these same children acknowledging their gifts and working extra harder to achieve success. We have heard so many of these success stories. We are proud of MFFO and very proud of the successes of the children. Thank you MFFO...YOU GUYS are the BEST...Thanks Rocky and Audrey and all the ladies that work very hard every year to do the best they can to give back..a little at a time.

You'd be hard pressed to find a more committed group of selfless, hard working volunteers than MFFO. Founded by Rocky Turner and now under the tutelage of Audrey Forshey, the orphans in Kenya continue to be lifted up and blessed with the gift of education. Rest assured that 100% of your donation will be invested wisely and is greatly appreciated, no matter the size!

This organization raises money to educate girls in an orphanage in Kenya. All money raised goes to the upkeep of the orphanage and the girls' education. The aim is to get as many girls as possible into higher education and professions such as medicine, law and teaching. After many years, the first girls are beginning to graduate and start their careers. It's very exciting.

I've been affiliated with MFFO for 6 years now, more so as I've sponsored a young woman as she goes to nursing school these past 4. Helping Jane and the girls keeps me grounded, reminds me to be grateful and allows me to mentor a new nurse in a country desperately needing educated, qualified nurses.

I have been part of MFFO for almost 10 years. It is amazing to give girls an opportunity for an education who would not have that option. This organization has made the world smaller for my family by allowing us to love a child on another continent, support her and watch her grow. One day I hope to meet this sweet girl and all the others at St. Monica's. For now, it is a blessing to be a part of this organization and to know that I can support her and the rest financially and from my heart from afar, and there are others who will visit in my stead. The founder and all the board members have such a heart for these kids and ensure that the funds are being used for the highest and best purpose. I just joined the board this year and look forward to growing the support base!

I have served on the board for about 10 years. I personally work with volunteers to raise funds to keep the girls in school. I travel to Kenya to personally see the girls and experience their education and growth. The girls are healthy and happy and I am proud to serve their needs.

I discovered the MFFO information on the internet through Social Networking. The first thing I saw was the handing out of underwear to children in refugee camps in Africa. I was moved that a small group of people were coming together to make a difference. I have volunteered for other organizations but this one struck me because it was small and I can directly see the difference that has been made in the girl's lives. The direct knowledge or contact is very powerful.

MFFO does a great job of providing opportunities for education to many who would not have access to them otherwise. They truly impact individuals who go on to help others. They add a human element to charitable giving.

I have known Rocky Turner for almost 4 years now. I have been part of the MFFO West Coast Fundraising team for 2 years. Rocky's story and her love and dedication to the children at St. Monica's completely inspired me to reach out and help. She is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I am proud to be a part of this organization . To know, with her guidance, we are making a difference in this world. I am honored to know Rocky and experience first hand, her selflessness and commitment to these girls.

I have known Rocky to be the hardest working, least selfish, most committed person in any non-profit. Alot of people will volunteer on a weekend but to spend thousands, travel to the other side of the country, Disrupt her own life, There is just not many folks like this. I sponsor a child and actually have fund raisers at my house. Non of that would have ever happened without her crystal clear passion.

I was first introduced to Mothers Fighting for Others when I attended their First Annual West Coast Fundraiser 2013. I was in awe of the founder, Rocky Turner. Her drive and passion for what she does is nothing short of amazing! What Rocky has been able to accomplish 9,000 miles away and with about four trips a year is astounding. Because of Rocky and her team, the children of St. Monica's are thriving. The entire MFFO team is dedicated to providing the children with a home where they will feel safe, valued and loved. Mothers Fighting For Others is 100% volunteer based and is extremely financial responsible with the children's best interest at heart. MFFO is one of the best run non-profit. Great job MFFO!

Along with providing over 50 children a safe happy home they also strive to provide the best possible education for each of them. Truly inspiring, truly life changing, bless you both!

I learned about Rocky and MFFO from an article in a local magazine. I was so inspired by her story that I asked, "What can I do to help?" Rocky's letter on the MFFO site really says it all. If these girls were my girls, what would I want? Rocky has changed my life. And now she gives me the opportunity to help change the lives of others. http://www.mothersfightingforothers.com/mission/founder/
