Keith & Kathy Ham

Missions of Hope International (MOHI) is led by our founder - Mary Kamau, Executive Director, with the assistance of 11 other non-executive directors. The Board of Directors is responsible for MOHI's strategic objectives and supervision of senior management. Our primary goal is to see transformed lives among the disadvantaged communities in Kenya and beyond.

MOHI's directors are knowledgeable, independent, and experienced, with the necessary skills to carry out their responsibilities. They help guide the formulation of new policies and ensure that the organization aligns with the Kenyan government’s requirements for NGOs.
