Membership in Friends of Kenya is open to anyone who shares our goals. You do not need to be a Returned Peace Corps volunteer (RPCV) to join.
Your money will be used to help people in Kenya, through a variety of projects (see Projects). This Web site, which brings you information about Kenya as well as activities and projects of FOK, is a major benefit. Your membership makes this site possible. A small portion of your dues covers administrative expenses (conference calls, printing costs, and so forth).

FOK Board members serve for one-year terms and are elected each summer.
