Kipchumba Foundation was founded by Paul Kipchumba in 2014 in the Republic of Kenya as a non-profit, non-political, non-partisan education-based organization.
The Foundation aims at documenting global cultures, sub-cultures, or trends; generating knowledge and promoting general networking among scholars, researchers, students, local communities, and interest persons and groups around the world; offering vocational skills and other opportunities to school dropouts and other disadvantaged individuals/ groups.
Thus the main objective of the Foundation is to promote an information-conscious global society by enhancing appreciation of wider theoretical, philosophical and civilizational perspectives.
The Foundation concentrates on four programmes:
- Open Sources: Coordinating systematic documentation of cultures, sub-cultures or trends, especially among indigenous ethno-linguistic communities; enacting an accessible depository of already collected socio-cultural materials, updating and disseminating the same. The proceedings of this programme, other than being published in book and booklet forms, also enrich Indigenouspedia (The Encyclopedia of Indigenous Cultures and Trends).
- Seminars: Running country-specific, theme-conscious multi-disciplinary academic conferences/ seminars/ workshops and discussions. The proceedings of the programme are published in Education Tomorrow, a country-specific journal.
- Vocational Schools: Managing vocational schools for school dropouts and other disadvantaged individuals/ groups in poor/ underprivileged sections of every country on quality and sustainable bases. The registered name of the vocational schools in Kenya is Kipchumba Vocational Training Institute.
- Kipchumba Education Prize: Administering a high value annual education prize for individuals or groups of individuals who (have) promote(d) education in their countries/ regions or all over the world
