In a nutshell, we're a small bunch of God loving, Christ following disciples who are trying to make a difference in Kenya. We believe that God loves us passionately and because of the love God has shown us, we want to passionately love the world around us. We work on several projects around Kenya with one aim: to love people & show them a glimpse of what the God of love is like.
Our Main Activities
Here are the causes we have been supporting over the years.
We are glad you found us, Kivuli Kijijini is a home for least, last and lost, centered in small Bungu village. Our aim is to reach out to everyone in Chasimba area with love and compassion.
Sozo Women Empowerment
In a country where education is not freely available to all, girls are often side lined & denied the opportunity to go to school or to finish their education. This in turn affects their chances of getting a job or being able to start their own business.
Containers of Hope
In partnership with Clynview Care Farm (https://www.clynfyw.co.uk/) we ship over containers of mobility aids to distribute to those who need them. The sad reality for many with disabilities in this area is that their families are ashamed of them & they are not allowed to leave their homes. We're working to break down this social taboo by providing mobility aids & making it possible for those with disabilities to go to school & to move around in their community.
One of the struggles of girls living in poverty is that they can't afford sanitary towels. Many have to stay at home when they get their monthly period which means they can miss up to 5 days of school a month. As time goes on their school grades lower & for this reason many drop out of school. Others, in desperation, sell their bodies for money to buy sanitary towels. They then fall pregnant and again drop out of school. We want every girl to have the opportunity to finish school & so every term we host an event for girls from local schools to give them sanitary towels for the term. During our events we also teach them about women's health & hygiene & teach them their value.
At our centre, we have a number of goats which we give as loans to families in need. When the goat breeds & the kid is ready to leave the mother, they give back one of the goat kids to repay their 'loan'. This goat is then grown & used to help the next family & so the cycle continues. If you donate to give a goat, you'll not only bless one family but many
At Kivuli Kijijini we give children & young people a chance to hear about God & to grow in their faith. We teach them to dance, play games & give them an opportunity to open up about the struggles they face.
We believe we're here to make a spiritual difference as well as a physical one. The prayer hut is here for anyone from the community to come & be with God.
Little Angel's Sponsorship program
In Kibera slum, Nairobi, we give children from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to go to school through sponsorship.
Water For Life
Getting clean water can be challenging in Kilifi County, especially for the elderly and those with disabilities. When water needs to be collected from a river or other water source, the task often falls on girls & gives them another reason to be absent from school. Water for life runs twice a week to give free, clean water to those who need it to help relieve them & their families of this burden.
