Our Vision

Committed to Loyal & Lasting Community Improvement.

Founded in France in 1996, Le Kinkeliba has constructed uniquely effective medical centers that provide life-saving health services to villages deep in the African bush where such facilities and program were previously non-existent. It also creates schools for young children who otherwise would be playing on the outskirts of unfenced villages in dangerous conditions, and provides sanitary facilities lacking in the children's homes.

Named after a local West African plant used for medicinal purposes, Le Kinkeliba is the creation of French physician Dr. Gilles Degois. Dr. Degois and his colleagues have created medical centers that offer a wide range of women's health services and foster preventative methods against disease. Le Kinkeliba also partners with hospitals and clinics to deliver the benefits and materials of modern medicine to underserved populations.
