Inquire about the trip

Team member fee is $1835. Help a community do light construction on a school for disabled students in a primitive area of Kenya and host at least 3 medical camps. We finished the girls dormitory in 2019 and a well dug soon; our team will soon fix that! We provide the training, you provide the dirty clothes! Our team will also host at least three or more primary care medical camps for different rural communities...for many locals, this will be the first time they ever saw a doctor. And whenever possible, we'll venture out to see Lake Victoria, the Equator, the Uganda border communities, and one of the famous Kenya game parks.

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

See Bananas Walk!

This mission trip is open to everyone! Your trip fee of $1835.00 does not include round trip international airfare but does include, medicines for the medical camps, most meals, ground transportation, in-country air travel, some of the materials related to the work project, and secure camp style and hotel lodging!

You will help with light construction on a much-needed roof and well for a disabled students secondary school in rural Kenya, assist with three or more medical camp outreaches, and meet lots of kids and their families; everyone takes part! This is a wonderful opportunity to serve Jesus among some of the areas of greatest need in rural Kenyan communities where HIV/AIDS has orphaned nearly 70% of the children. We partner with our friends at the Ministry of Health who are incredibly gracious to our teams. The camps can last a day or even two but everyone will receive care in these areas where medical facilities are few and far between. You will be part the COMMIT Team that helps these communities make changes at their schools to meet the mounting challenges in medicine, equality, and in economics. 

You are needed and even if you just wish to share with any of the classes at the schools, play volleyball, basketball, or soccer, visit the grade schools next door, or just hold the greatest kids in the world! Even though experience is never required, we could benefit by having those on our team who know a bit about construction, brick work, block work, well drillers, water tank fabricator, Hydroponics, Agroponics, plumbing, solar, concrete workers, electricians, medicine, doctors, nurses, first aid, and other related fields. After all, we don't know everything but have very qualified team leaders to help you learn how to do much of the needed work.

Not all work and no play…this team will take a safari game drive at a national game park to view wild animals in their natural habitat. We'll also do some shopping for souvenirs at the Maasai market and finish our debriefing in Nairobi before going home.
