Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide resources and services to support and strengthen the development of children and families globally, who are at risk of the devastating effects of poverty, HIV/AIDS and other opportunistic viruses.                                                 



In light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and safety of families, this Tea Party event on April 26, 2020 is postponed. We will promote it again at some future date. Thanks!

Thank You! St. Anne Institute (Albany, NY) for allowing the Foundation to once again provide A Holiday party (December 2019) for your clients. It was a fun day filled with music, dancing, gifts for the girls  and lots to eat and drink. This year Ghana Association helped to host this Event.

Congratulations Marylin Kippins

(Flora E. Kippins Foundation Inc. - President)


ALBANY NY - Out of dozens applications & five finalists, Marylin was crowned Mother of the Year at the 21st Annual Tulip Festival. Marylin was nominated by her friend Dwight Williams. Nominees are judged by their commitment to their familes, as well as their commitment to doing a variety of work in their respective communities.


Marylin is a single mother of four college educated children. She is also the President of Flora E. Kippins Foundation, Inc. She founded this Foundation in honor and memory of her mother who herself was a philanthropist.


As a reminder this foundation provides services in Upstate NY, Ghana & Guyana. Currently the Foundation is planning to build a much needed health clinic in Anamobo, Ghana.
