Kenya is affectionately called “the heart of Africa” by her people. As such, it remains a country rich in culture, history, and opportunity in Africa. In the mountains 50 km. west of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, is an area known as Kijabe, “Place of the Wind”.
Children in Kijabe, Kenya are living in some of the worst conditions on our planet. Many have been orphaned by AIDS and suffer from extreme malnutrition and preventable, water-borne illnesses. Most families live in dirt floor shacks with no electricity or sewage systems. Most parents cannot afford to give their children more than one meal a day or to send them to school. For those fortunate enough to go, it often requires miles of walking, often barefoot, to get there. This is especially dangerous for girls because sexual assault is common while traveling.
Our program, Mama Beth’s Children’s Program, has its roots in a ministry that was started decades ago by a dedicated Kenyan woman, “Mama Beth”, who began feeding and caring for children in her community from her home. Through a partnership with Mama Beth’s daughter (the acting Program Director), we’re providing at-risk children with a daily nutritious meal, safe drinking water, access to medical evaluations, school tuition and emotional support. Most importantly, we’re showing a growing number of children how loved they are by God, teaching them to follow Christ, and helping them realize their full, God-given potential.
Empower the children in our program by giving monthly or one time.
Gather nine others and go serve the children in our program first-hand.

Monthly giving enables our programs to have sustained impact in the lives of children and communities, but every donation makes a difference. To make a one-time donation select the arrows next to “Monthly” and select “One Time”.
