Overview

Join Maranatha in the fascinating country of Kenya! There is a great need for churches and school in this eastern African country, and local church leadership has requested Maranatha’s assistance.

The job scope for this project is still to be determined; however, volunteers will likely be constructing a block school building. Depending on the skills and interest of the volunteers who join the team, there may also be opportunities to conduct local community outreach, children’s programs, and health education.

This project will also likely include a safari excursion at one of the world-famous national parks in Kenya!

Join the interest list to be notified when more information and registration is available.
