Kenya Narok

Supporting Kenya's vulnerable youth

For many years, we have partnered with local projects in Narok to provide sustainable support to help provide education, safe housing for girls escaping FGM and forced marriage and accommodation for street children. With our work at Nkapilili School now complete (a school which has successfully integrated disabled children into mainstream schooling), our main project will now focus on the work of Mission with a Vision, supporting girls who have fled FGM and early marriage as well as Fountain of Life, who work with street children and vulnerable women. 

 

Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

For the past 21 years, Josephine and Patrick Ngigi have dedicated their lives to providing shelter to girls at risk of undergoing FGM and early marriage, rescuing hundreds of girls.

It started as Bishop Patrick, then a deputy headteacher in the Maasailands, was approached by a few teenage girls in his school who confided that they would not be returning to school because they were to be ‘circumcised’ in preparation for marriage. Involving the pastor of his local church and child services, the girls were taken to live with Patrick’s mother. Over the years, as more and more girls approached him for help, he decided to give up teaching and concentrate on building a safehouse (his mother’s and her friends’ houses were full to the brim!), 'Mission With a Vision'. Joined by his wife Josephine, they committed to helping create “a society that embraces equal opportunities for both boys and girls that is free from FGM and forced early marriage”.

We’ll be helping to build further accommodation here to help assist the rescue and safe housing of girls escaping these unimaginable circumstances. 

We'll also be working to support Fountain of Life, run by Pastor Robert and his wife Esther who have two ministries: Rescue accommodation/support for street boys and skills workshops for women living in poverty. 

Afternoons: Support community projects as well as visiting Nkapilili School where we have previously built classrooms and dormitories for disabled children.

 

Rest and Relaxation

We can’t take you to Kenya without going on safari – and not just any safari! Visit the Maasai Mara game park – one of the finest in the world – and experience awe-inspiring wildlife.

There’s also the chance to get close (but not too close!) to the hippos on a boat trip.
