The BigGive fundraiser raised enough for a Senior Nurse and two Field Nurses and 4 Family Planning counselors.

The Land Rover funded last year is fully staffed!

Goal - $30,000

Thanks to the Maroney Foundation 

we were able to send $40,000.  

A representative of the Foundation lives in Northern Laikipia and sees first hand how important this work is.

100% of your donation goes to the causes we support as the board members are unpaid and they pay all operating costs.


What we do

CHAPS provides direct funding to remote clinics that have proven to be effective in their environment. These clinics recieve only small amounts of funding from large programs and we endeavor to fill in the gaps. You may direct your donations to one of the following categories of funding:

Family planning 

Family planning is one of the most critical needs for remote communities to survive and thrive.  By choosing to space their children 3-5 years apart it is possible for the whole family to survive the devastating droughts that regularly sweep the north of Kenya. Read More

CHAPS Solar Vaccine Refrigerator

Imagine eradicating vaccine preventable diseases all over the world.  This dream is with in reach; help us make it a reality.  At CHAPS we have been working to build a solar powered vaccine refrigerator to transport immunizations to some of the most remote communities in the world.  We have developed one that meets the tough transportation requirements and protects the vaccines to the specifications of the World Health Organization. Read More

In partnership with Lift Up Africa ( and with testing support from PATH (  and Cascade Engineering we are working to develop a vaccine refrigerator that meets the World Health Organization specifications and can be sent out on pack animals to remote locations.
