Mission Trips

We love having visitors at Missions of Hope International! More than 700 visitors come to Kenya each year to see and experience the ministry! Short-term teams encourage and impact our students, staff, and community. Each team brings skills to share, boundless energy to encourage and uplift, and God’s love to pour out to others.

What to Expect on a MOHI Trip

Trips through Missions of Hope International are a chance to serve local students and communities, experience Kenyan culture, and support our long-term workers in their ministry.

On a MOHI trip, you’ll have the chance to….


  • Be immersed in the culture

    Spend time with our team in the Mathare Valley communities. By visiting homes and meeting individuals in the community, you’ll experience daily life and activities through their eyes.

  • Participate in community work

    Teams work on projects such as installing roof panels, performing street drama, conducting community education on HIV/AIDS, and building playgrounds. Get hands-on experience as you work alongside our local team!

  • Learn more about MOHI

    Meet Wallace and Mary, the founders and directors, and see firsthand the impact the team has through the schools, clinics, skills training centers, and other programs.

  • Build relationships with students

    As you visit MOHI schools and lead Vacation Bible School (VBS), spend time with students, answer questions about yourself (like your favorite color!), learn their stories, and share yours.

  • Meet your sponsored child

    If you sponsor a child through MOHI, this trip is a chance to meet them, deepening your relationship and learning more about their life!

  • Have new experiences

    See the realities of disadvantaged communities, eat Kenyan food, visit local markets, and truly experience the culture. Finish your trip with a safari at one of Kenya’s game parks.

Return home with memories, new friends, new understanding, and new respect for other cultures. These trips are a truly unique experience and impact the lives of our students and workers.


A trip with Missions of Hope International gives you the opportunity to make a difference by partnering with the ongoing work of our local team. Together we can see lives transformed through the hope of Christ in disadvantaged communities in Kenya and beyond.

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for your team. Contact us to start planning your trip!
