Katie nominated Oasis for Orphans.
Without family or home, a Kenyan orphan is often destined for a life in the slums. A hungry, dirty, seemingly hopeless life.
In 2004, intense poverty, sickness, and hopelessness of Kenyan slums shocked two visiting American families. This despair left the families searching for ways to save these orphaned children—only the solution didn’t lie in redeeming the slums.
Oasis for Orphans utilizes a unique model to develop kids in a holistic way
The program gives children hope and molds them into leaders in their communities and for the kingdom. Focusing on the 110,000 orphans in six counties in rural southwest Kenya, the holistic program centers around the physical, spiritual, educational, and social development of the children.
The mission places high value...
Elevation Corporate Health had humble beginnings. Sandy Meagher and Tom Kapp met in a local hospital in the Baltimore-Washington corridor.

In 2013, we re-branded the company and changed the name to Elevation Corporate Health. From fitness management and onsite staffing to customizable technology solutions and online programs, Elevation has...
