Welcome to HEPTO

We build strong foundations for sustainable healthcare extension, promotion and training initiatives for impoverished Kenyans

About UsDonate

HEPTO will seek to work with community-based organizations in East Africa to offer free medical outreaches in parts of the country and support local medical health centres with medical supplies and equipment


Who We Are

Healthcare Extension Promotion and Training Organization (HEPTO) is a non-profit, non-political, and non-faith-based entity registered with 501(C)3 status by U.S. Federal law in the State of Minnesota, and NGO Board of Kenya under the Non-Governmental Organizations Co-ordination Act of 1990.

Besides our presence in Kenya, we are also operational in Somalia,  Somaliland, and Ethiopia with the HEPTOs parent organization based at 7800 Metro Parkway, Suite 300, Bloomington, Minnesota.

Our Aim

Our main aim is to build strong foundations for sustainable healthcare extension, promotion and training initiatives for impoverished people groups of Machakos, Kitui, Meru, Isiolo and Kilifi counties of Kenya mainly through holding regular medical camps, treating the poor and the needy while providing food, bus fare and accommodation for those travelling from far places as well as organize for trainings of medical personnel on the best practices, on how to use and repair new equipment and the non-medical staff on first aid services.

Our Mission

The Healthcare Extension. Promotion & Training Organization (HEPTO) seeks to unite donors, volunteers, staff and communities around goal of advancing universal access to modern medicine and modern best practices.

We do this by establishing permanent infrastructure and continuing medical training and education in impoverished and traditionally underrepresented communities in Africa.

Our Vision

We envision a world in which donors, volunteers, healthcare providers and patients have overcome all barriers to ensure universal access to modern medicine and modern medical best practices.

More than just aid, impoverished communities all over the world need empowerment through permanent infrastructure, training and education. With a focus on medicine, HEPTO seeks to partner with nations to grow independently and teach community leaders to provide for themselves. ​​

Our Core Values


Empowerment is at the core of our mission.

We know that change comes not only from saving lives, but from empowering those in need to save themselves.



It is a defining human trait. We are dedicated to keeping hope alive by invigorating weak economies with new opportunity for trade and service.


If infrastructure is the road to a brighter future, training and education are the vehicle on the path. Using today’s tools to their potential we will bring knowledge and enrichment to those who need it most.

Why Us?

Our Goals

We know that to effect change we must address the cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. That’s why HEPTO seeks to offer more than medical aid. Like ripples in a pool, your gift will grow beyond measure.
