The Mission of the St. Kizito Foundation

The mission of the St. Kizito Foundation is to respect and promote the value of human life by nurturing and shaping the future of East African youth with difficult backgrounds.  We strive to provide educational scholarship and scholarships as well as guidance and counseling.  We extend basic life needs.  Our efforts are particularly focused on vulnerable children and youth in Uganda.

he following is a reflection written by Sempa Don who serves the St. Kizito Foundation “on the ground” in Uganda.

The month of May witnessed our scholars returning back to their homes for first term holiday. I was blessed to visit one of the children’s homes who was a recipient of the Global Solidarity Ministry outreach program coordinated by the St. Kizito Foundation office in Kampala.

acrina Dodson, a teacher at a Catholic school here in Cleveland, wrote a wonderful tribute about Father Donald Dunson and the Saint Kizito Foundation. Both Father and the Foundation have played an important role in the formation of her confirmation students. The following is the wonderful tribute she shared.

Fr. Don Dunson can be described as being small in stature, but gigantic in heart, mind, spirit and ministry. While to our knowledge, he has never “leapt over buildings in a single bound,” he crosses the ocean to minister to God’s children in East Africa. His priesthood does not end in Africa. He ministers and educates children in the Diocese of Cleveland.

ince the St. Kizito Foundation came into existence, it brings to mind a number of common memories. We have witnessed the crumbling of empires, springs of molecule, conquest of communities and emergencies yet the fabric of the organization has remained true, heightening our appreciation for its enduring character permeated with an increasingly vibrant presence.
