It all started in 2012 when Founder, Cam Greenwood, visited Kenya for the first time on a missions trip to Kenya. He was based at the Huruma Children’s Home for three weeks to live, play and work alongside some of the most vulnerable children in Kenya. The Huruma Children’s Home was founded in 1989, and takes care of children from ages 0 to 18 years old. Currently the home has over 250 children. The home offers real hope for these amazing kids through providing a warm homely environment and education.
The purpose of the trip was to help where possible and be a blessing to the home - however, Cam walked away with a completely different take on life on these beautiful children were the real blessing to him. The children captured his heart and showed him that life really is quite simple - we just complicate it.
To see these children that don't have the luxuries we enjoy here in the western world, find joy in the smallest of things and have such passion and enthusiasm for life was so contagious had an everlasting impact on him.
From then on the Monsta Foundation was established as a way to give back and offer practical support to projects locally and overseas.
The Foundation has been used to resource many initiatives including the Huruma Fish Farm projects, various developmental projects in Kenya & the Philippines, water filtration projects and disaster relief.
Every project has a major focus on sustainability and empowerment of the community, ensuring that we transform our contribution into future benefit.

The Live Passionately Film
The Live Passionately film documents the journey of our 'Live Passionately' movement. The film follows the tribe as they are taken on the adventure of a lifetime to the Philippines.
In this 50 minute film, the team head to the Philippines in order to find paradise and search for perfect surf... but what unfolded was not what anyone expected at all.
This film is for you. And for those in your world who need to hear this story as well.
We also want to build awareness and raise funds for more water filtration and re-development projects for the locals affected by Typhoon Yolanda, who are featured in this film.
Plan International is an organisation that has been working in the Philippines for over 50 years in disaster risk management, education, child protection, health & youth engagement.
We are partnering with Plan International in order to redevelop the affected areas in the Philippines region as well as a child focused project in the urban slums to better prepare them for when a natural disaster like Typhoon Haiyan strikes.
They learn preparedness training and how to build resilience in their community. In addition to this program work, our partnership with Plan International will train staff in the Philippines so that when a disaster strikes, they are able to safe guard the children and create safe places.
