Mission Statement

The Foundation?s mission is to support and advocate for the needs and rights of children who are orphaned or affected by HIV/AIDS in Kenya. The Foundation?s focus is on children and teens who have lost one or both parents and are left in the care of other children, neighbors or relatives who themselves may need economic support. Many orphans in Kenya are forced to become ?parents? to their younger siblings and can easily end up on the streets?the real tragedy is that these orphaned children are being left behind with no hope for the future unless someone intervenes. The Foundation endeavors to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, educational and economic needs of the desperately poor, neglected and forgotten orphans whose parent or parents have died of AIDS by effectively and wisely providing support services to critical needs required by the orphans to become responsible citizens. All children included in this program, are therefore orphaned, and live in the designated areas (South Nyanza province in Kenya and neighboring communities) where Sam?s Children of Hope works. Sam?s Children of Hope programs and activities take an integrated approach to development, AIDS care and prevention, counseling, social support and spiritual guidance. The Foundation focuses on four critical areas: 1. Child Empowerment 2. HIV/AIDS, Advocacy, Prevention And Awareness 3. Food Security/Nutrition Support 4. Home Based Care

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
