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 theme-conscious multi-disciplinary conferences/ seminars/ workshops and discussions both physically and electronically by e-seminars/ e-conferences. The proceedings of the programme are published in Education Tomorrow, a country-specific journal.
- Vocational Education: Offering courses on the theme Emerging Technological Solutions as Vocational Skills to every deserving student, especially school dropouts and other disadvantaged individuals/ groups in poor/ underprivileged sections of every country, on quality and sustainable bases. The programme is offered through Kipchumba Vocational Training Institute (registered in 2017) and works on partnership with existing vocational institutions all over the world and by direct administration of lectures and issuance of certificates upon successful completion electronically.
- Kipchumba Education Prize: Administering an annual education prize for individuals or groups of individuals who (have) promote(d) education in their countries/ regions or all over the world
