Welcome to Kenya! Madaktari I Kenya ("Doctors in Kenya") is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization started in December 2011 by Maine Physician Dr. Stephen Sokol following his retirement from practice in Maine. Dr. Sokol has spent a career working in Africa and other countries around the world.
No longer the newest, but still perhaps among the smallest NGO's on the planet, Madaktari I Kenya was launched to provide medical aid where Dr. Sokol saw a great need in rural Kenya. Madaktari I Kenya now focuses on the "Next Step" project, providing educational, housing, medical, and counseling support to a group of boys who were rescued under the US Department of Justice Project Safe Childhood initiative.
"If you think something small can't make a big difference, you haven't spent a night in a tent with a mosquito."
