Mathare, Kenya General Team

Jun 20 2023 - Jul 3 2023
Nairobi, KE

On the outskirts of Nairobi Kenya Is a forgotten valley where the poorest of the poor have lived for over 100 years… the Mathare Valley. Eastside in partnership with Missions of Hope International, and the churches of the valley have been fortunate to have touched the lives of thousands of children and their families for over 20 years. MOHI brings opportunity through education to children living in slum areas, and plants churches to offer hope in Jesus Christ to the whole community.  To date, MOHI serves over 25,000 children in schools and reaches families in dozens of churches countrywide. Come with us for what will be the trip of a lifetime that will transform the way you understand God as you help these children and build up the local churches to better reach those far from God.  Share with families and tell of God’s love, bring much-needed food right to their doorsteps, help with improvements to church facilities they meet in,  provide activities for the children, enhance local businesses,  ....and meet the child you sponsor! Africa has a unique way of finding a place in your heart and leaving an indelible mark that stays with you forever.  Come and experience it with us! Your trip to Kenya will end with an amazing two-day safari seeing the animals of the Serengeti/Masai Mara plains.
