Kenya – Achungo Mission Trip

January 18 - January 29

We take 2 team trips each year to this orphanage/school. We partner with Achungo Children’s Center, its founder and Director, Michael Nyangi, and its teaching staff.

Our activities will include working with the children, teaching games, sports and doing some tutoring for those struggling in school.  Some of us will work with the teachers on methods, materials, classroom management, and other helpful skills and tools.  Some of us will work on simple construction or repair projects.

This trip will strengthen your faith, broaden your worldview and deepen your understanding of poverty. You will experience how God’s love works through community.

Pre-trip preparation: The team will meet about four times prior to the trip to plan, learn about the rich history and culture of Kenya, build team relationships, organize supplies, prepare activities and prepare our hearts.
