What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

It Never Gets Old!!

YOUR $3885 trip fee includes RT air travel! This opportunity is open to everyone! The team member fee also includes hotel and camp-style lodging, most meals, in-country flights, ground transportation, medicines for the outreach, a daytime animal Safari, and materials related to the project. Our team will be helping with on-going construction needs for a boys dormitory at a school created mostly for orphans in the mountains of Western Province. Our team works alongside locals helping to provide the labor to make concrete blocks, dig the foundation, and do whatever it is that we can to make this dream a reality. We will also host at least three community-wide primary care medical camps with oversight from the Ministry of Health and visit or help with a project at Hope House, a home for disabled children. You may also take part on a day time safari to see the animals at one of the famous Kenya game parks. Experience is not required. Once we have completed the mission, the team will debrief before going home. This service opportunity will change your life!

Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals

The special needs orphan home was begun to meet the burgeoning needs in the area, mostly with children with Cerebral Palsy. The local churches and pastors play a key role in management and development. There are six secondary schools we work with and all were started by local churches.
