Dr. Milton & Dr. Fred Ochieng


Co-Founders, Lwala Community Alliance

Educating the girls of Lwala simultaneously fights poverty, disease and social decay. It's one of the best protections against AIDS. Since the barriers for girls are multiple, so must the solutions be.

Milton Ochieng, MD and Fred Ochieng, MD are brothers from Lwala, a village in Kenya. They came to the U.S. to go to college and medical school. While in school, they lost both of their parents to AIDS and took this as a call to action to build a hospital in their home community. Their organization, the Lwala Community Alliance (www.LwalaCommunityAlliance.org), now provides care to 17,000 patients a year.
