Forward Advantage and its employees have had a long-standing commitment to help those in need both locally and in Kenya. Over the years, the company has sponsored local food drives, charitable events, and outreach programs. Its Kenyan initiatives have led to funding for a bridge in Kipkaren to provide locals with easy access to the school, church, and medical clinic. Additionally, company resources and employee efforts have led to funding, computers, and Internet access for Kipkaren’s clinic and Empowering Lives International, a non-profit organization devoted to breaking the cycle of poverty in East Africa. The Forward Advantage Foundation was created in 2011 as a fully chartered 501c3 non-profit. The goal of the Foundation is to expand upon these outreach programs and fundraising efforts in an effort to break the cycle of poverty.
