Cross World
Africa Inc.
was borne out of the goal of 'caring for others' both locally and globally. Cross World Africa, Inc. (CWA), started as the 'Kip Keino Foundation - USA' in an effort to highlight the work that is being done by Dr. Kipchoge 'Kip' Keino in Eldoret, Kenya. CWA, Inc. in 2009-2010 is going to focus on small villages in Tanzania, Zanzibar, Uganda and Malawi. From December 2006 through the spring of 2007, the Foundation completed several efforts such as the 'Kip Keino Mile' (May, 2007) and assisted in establishing the city of Eldoret Kenya and Ithaca, NY 'Sister City'.

Working to Create Sustainable Change

We have assisted local farmers and villages through our cow-share program; ensuring that remote populations have access to food and economic opportunities.

We have provided test preparation materials, scholarships, and other educational opportunities to children throughout Kenya and Tanzania.

  2. Support cross-cultural exchange
  3. Identify micro-enterprise opportunities
  4. Support athletic opportunities for collegiate athletes
  5. Expand medical service options and provide education on population control, HIV/Aids and sports medicine
