What's Included

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.

Volunteers on this project will be working at the Kimogoro Adventist School. This school started in 1996 with only 35 students and is now home for more than 200 kids. The growing campus needs help to improve its infrastructure.

This group will be building a new classroom building on campus. Depending on the skills 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 include two safari excursions at the Lake Nakuru National Park and the world-famous Masai Mara National Park!
