The mission of the Kerosene Lamp Foundation (KLF) is to empower youth to grow into healthy and well-educated adults. KLF was founded in 2003 by a native of St. Vincent & the Grenadines and retired NBA player, Adonal Foyle. KLF uses basketball as a bridge to the next generation, promoting education and health awareness, providing free Athletics & Academics camps, mentoring at-risk student-athletes and building/refurbishing basketball courts.
To date we have directly reached over 5,000 children.
The name “Kerosene Lamp” refers to the lighting used by Adonal to study on an island without electricity, and symbolizes his mission to brighten the futures of today’s youth.
Kerosene Lamp Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN# 01-0857784).
