It takes a dedicated team to attain our vision of holistic transformation. We are grateful for our Kenyan staff of over 1400 who work together in all aspects of our integrated ministries: such as teachers, social workers, community health evangelism officers, discipleship officers, counselors, cooks and cleaners.
