MINISTRY PARTNERS

KENYA PARTNERS

Oasis for Orphans is a ministry that we partner with in Kenya. Oasis for Orphans has two centers in Kenya, The Valley and The Shelter. Oasis provides a holistic care approach for orphaned children, which focuses  on four key areas, including physical, spiritual, educational, and social development. With a strong emphasis on education, Oasis tracks and measures the progress of each child in their care.

Founded in 1906, Rift Valley Academy provides a safe, nurturing environment for children of missionaries serving in Africa. Teddy Roosevelt laid the cornerstone to the main building of this Christian boarding school in 1909. Located in central Kenya, RVA has a student body of nearly 500 students representing more than 20 different nationalities. Their families serve with 80 mission organizations in over 20 African countries and could not continue their ministries without RVA. The single greatest contribution you can make is to keep the school in your prayers.

Little Lambs is a daycare program that demonstrates God’s love by nourishing children made vulnerable by poverty or orphaned by HIV/AIDS. The children are fed one meal a day plus a snack while they learn basic reading, writing and math. When funds are available, the children receive school uniforms and supplies, clothing, shoes and medical care. Little Lambs provides a safe, loving environment where children are free to play, sing, learn about God’s love for them, and just enjoy being a kid.

Just Bible Ministries is a church that we partner with in Kisii, Kenya. Their mission is to love God, love people, make disciples and be His witness. Within the church they strive to help those who have physical needs and provide them with an opportunity to teach the Word of God. At the church, they are currently housing 27 orphans. We are in the process of helping Just Bible build permanent homes for the 27 orphans on the church compound.

UGANDA PARTNERS

COBURWAS International Youth Organization to Transform Africa (CIYOTA) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization established by refugee youth in December 2005 in Kyangwali refugee settlement, Uganda. The founders arrived in Kyangwali from Congo (DRC), Burundi, Uganda, Rwanda and Sudan (CO-BU-RWA-S) along with thousands of refugees fleeing violence and problems resulting from conflicts in their home countries. CIYOTA recognizes the power of education as a pathway out of poverty, as well as a means to heal conflict, create social cohesion, and spur economic growth. Education for youth through methods that also build corresponding commitment and support of families and the community is therefore the focus of CIYOTA’s work.

ZAMBIA PARTNERS

The Eleeo Project is a ministry that established missionaries, the Whitfield’s, started in the year 2012. Their motto is bringing new life to the spiritual and physical wastelands of the Southern Zambia bush and they do just that. This is seen through creating authentic Christ-centered relationships with community and individuals they interact with in the Tonga villages. Along side cultivating relationships they partner in conservation farming programs that focus on teaching the local Tonga farmer to cultivate at a high standard, to plant on time, focus on minimal wastage, and do it all with a joyful spirit, The Whitfield’s continue their work by providing opportunities for community development, experience, team work, and family experience for any and all people they interact with.

Our desire is that every person that serves on a short-term trip with us will come home with a clear vision and a pure passion to serve right where they live.
