Our Challenge is Poverty
Poverty comes in all forms, physical, spiritual, emotional, relational, economic. It robs people of their basic needs— food, clean water, sanitation, healthcare, and education. It destroys hope, purpose, and self-worth. It infects hearts with isolation, apathy, dependency, disconnection, and addiction. Poverty is life fallen short of God’s intent.
Our Strategy is Holistic
Poverty fractures relationship with self, others, God, and society. We want to make these relationships whole so people in extreme poverty can live as God intended. Our strategy is holistic: Whole gospel for the whole person. Our integrated programs address brokenness in every area of life.
Our Results are Transformational
Children educated, parents empowered, communities restored, lives redeemed. The hope of Christ is spreading throughout unreached and overlooked communities and we won’t stop until God’s transformation increases beyond measure.

Educate, empower, restore, and redeem orphaned and vulnerable children, their families, and others in disadvantaged communities through holistic transformation in Christ.
After hearing God’s persistent call to minister in Mathare, Wallace and Mary Kamau founded MOHI in the year 2000 with an initial enrollment of 50 kindergarten students. Over the years, God has blessed the ministry through new partners and rapid growth. Today, over 16,000 students attend school in our 23 centers and our transformational programs reach thousands more.
Our focus and strength is serving in disadvantaged communities. We began in the Mathare Valley slum of Nairobi and have since spread to adjacent slums. In 2013, we started reaching remote and rural communities nationwide.
