June 20 - July 1
Located in east Africa, Kenya may be known for its vast landscapes—from the coastline on the Indian Ocean to the savannah and valleys and lakes, to the mountains peaked with snow year-round. It also can’t go without mention the great number of wildlife that make their home in these lands, such as giraffes, elephants, lions, and rhinos. While there is much beauty to be seen in Kenya, brokenness paints the landscape as well with statistics such as these: 58% of Kenyans live on less than $2 a day; the unemployment rate sits at 40%; and less than 50% of children in the slum areas finish high school.
On this trip to Kenya, Engage partners with Jacaranda Community who is bringing beauty to the broken places. The mission of Jacaranda Community is to meet the spiritual and physical needs throughout Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi. They do this by creating jobs for widows and single mothers through the trade of sewing and provide the care and protection for the children of these women through education and health care. As a part of this team, you would get to join with Jacaranda Community in conducting a youth camp, discipleship, medical care, evangelism, home visits, and youth and children’s ministry both in the church and slum areas around Nairobi.
