Kenya Hope's mission is to assist in changing peoples life situation by the teaching of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ through education, medical assistance and Christian relief and development. Our friends, Jim and Maggie Brewer, recently completed a mission trip to Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya and learned about the Kenya Hope Mission just as they were on their way home.
Kenya Hope has several different ways to contribute. You can give to a general fund or under the tab for PROGRAMS, you can sponsor a child or contribute to Feed a Family. There is also the Kids for Kids Program, which is purchasing a goat for a child to take care of, from which the family can get milk and other bi-products from the goat milk. kenyahope.org/programs/kids-for-kids/
