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, subcultures, or trends; generating knowledge and promoting general networking among scholars, researchers, students, local communities, and interest persons and groups around the world; offering technical 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:
- 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
- Running country-specific, theme-conscious multi-disciplinary academic conferences/ seminars/ workshops and discussions
- Running technical schools for school dropouts and other disadvantaged individuals/ groups in poor/ underprivileged sections of every country on quality and sustainable bases
- Administering a high value annual Kipchumba Education Prize for individuals or groups of individuals who have promoted education in their countries/ regions or all over the world
