About Us

Our Story

Oak Solutions from the Oak; considered a cosmic storehouse of wisdom embodied in its towering strength is one of the most loved trees in the world being a symbol of strength, morale, resistance, and knowledge. Oak Solutions was founded in 2018 by friends from different nationalities: – Kenyans, Congolese, Ethiopians, Burundians, and South Sudanese seeking inclusive and sustainable economic development through economic inclusion and self-reliance. Oak Solutions’ main objective is the Inclusive and sustainable economic development agenda. Driven by the conviction that all people, regardless of where they live, have the right to a dignified and productive livelihood that enables them to live in peace, security, justice, and dignity. 

Oak Solutions is governed by a Board of advisors, who bring experience, vision, integrity, and commitment to upholding high standards of governance. The board drives the decision-making process and facilitates the pursuit of our strategic goals by providing advice on policy, advocacy, fundraising, and public relations. Our program staff has a true pulse for sustainable economic recovery models, the driving force behind our success guided by the Oak Solutions internal control framework manuals. Oak Solutions envisions a world where vulnerable persons have the opportunity to earn a living and be self-reliant. 

The creativity of our program approach matches the unique nature of our operating environment and the people we serve. Sustainable Livelihood and Environmental quality need a balance between the demands of economic development and the need for protection of the environment. Oak Solutions’ goal is to empower vulnerable and marginalized persons to become agents of positive change and social cohesion through three approaches: – Economic Viability, Enabling Environment, and Social Equity.

Oak Solutions is one of the few organizations practicing multicultural collaboration with members from different cultural backgrounds and orientations.  Our goal is to build resilient refugees, youth, women, and host communities through holistic program approaches that lead to economic independence and creative economic recovery activities. We utilize gender-transformative approaches to create positive change for women and their communities. 

Environmental quality can increase with growth. Increased incomes, for example, provide the resources for public services such as sanitation. Our work expresses the commitment to promote the formation of grassroots groups of women, refugees, and the youth with the aim of increasing their self-reliance to achieve full participation in their communities. Eradicating extreme poverty for all people everywhere by 2030 is a key goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
