Mission Statement

Our mission, which is founded on Mark 16:15, is to empower the people of east Africa spiritually, educationally, and economically. We envision a world where everyone deserves the same opportunity no matter their location. We serve in Kenya, Africa in the second largest slum in the world, Kibera Slum.

Description

WATER + HYGIENE

We currently provide:

  • clean water education courses

  • demonstrations of how to use toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • bars of soap and wash clothes to children
  • clean, regular and school clothes to children
  • reusable sanitary napkins to school girls to ensure that they do not miss a day of school
BIBLE EVANGELIZING

Kenya has a high muslim population especially in the city. It is our desire to share Christ by passing out Bibles and simply talking to those we meet! Moreover, Bibles are expensive for many African families to buy. Some families share a Bible within the entire family, while others may have never owned a Bible. The Bibles we pass out are many times a person's very first Swahili or English Bibles.
