The Family International Kenya

of projects in Kenya

Kenya has a population of over 50 million people. According to UNICEF, forty two percent of its population live below the poverty line and access to basic quality services such as health care, education, clean water and sanitation, is often a luxury for many people.

Working with professionals, government agencies, and business leaders, members of the Family International in Kenya have established projects in the areas of food, aid, and resource distribution; education; HIV/AIDS support, and community development and outreach.

The projects conducted by members of the Family International in Kenya have served as a positive force to address pressing needs in communities where members are active.

Sponsors were located to participate in the construction of a new building.

Daily, over 200 of these children receive schooling and a nutritional meal. The programme helps to prepare and place these destitute children in local primary schools, and we locate sponsors for those who successfully make the transition. A teacher-training course is held twice a year for the centre’s teachers and staff, which helps maintain a high standard. The project has recently launched a weekly Bible club and Sunday school and also offers counseling for single mothers. Read more
