The Country:

This missions week, you will have an opportunity to serve in Kenya, a beautiful country that is stable but faces many challenges.  Widespread poverty, spreading urban slums and need for land reform create tension in Kenyan Society. There are 74 different languages spoken in Kenya and many of these ethnic groups clash over limited resources.

The Ministry:

The team will be working in and around Kambiri with our One 2 One school partner. While there, they may be involved in sharing the Gospel through community development projects, tutoring
students, food distribution and assisting teachers in schools. They will be working with the local missionaries to bring the hope of the Gospel to all!

Fundraising Goal Range:

  • Beaverton Campus: $3395-3895 *Launch City is Portland, OR

  • Valor Global Online: $3195-3695
