Kenya is a beautiful country in East Africa located on the equator along the Indian Ocean, with Ethiopia to the north and Tanzania to the south. Just like her geography and climate, Kenya’s population is strikingly diverse. Traditional herders, Arab Muslims, and cosmopolitan residents of the major cities all contribute to the culture. Game preserves with a variety of amazing animals are tourist destinations for visitors from around the world.

Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, is located in the central area of the country. It is a growing metropolis of 4 million people – one of Africa’s largest cities. Along with government buildings, there are beautiful parks, grand homes with manicured lawns, large hotels, and other modern buildings. Nairobi is the crossroads for business and trade in East Africa.

However, Nairobi is also home to some of the largest slums in Africa. It is estimated that one-half of the population of Nairobi lives in one of the 66 identified slums, which cover 5% of the land in the city. Of these people, 40% are HIV-positive. With your help, the CMF child sponsorship program is making a dramatic difference in these slums.

Local churches are reaching out to their communities through Community Health Evangelism (CHE), which:

     • ministers to children through education and feeding programs.
     • forms groups that care for those living with HIV/AIDS.
     • trains adults to start small businesses.
     • addresses water and sanitation issues.
     • changes lives through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

All of this transforms the community, bringing HOPE.

Kausyani is a rural village located about one hour outside of the city of Nairobi. In 2009, a small nursery school was opened at the nearby Joska boarding school, operated by CMF's local partner organization, Missions of Hope International. This school was opened in an effort to reach these impoverished children living in the rural areas outside of Nairobi so that they may also hear the message of the Gospel and find hope for a better life.
