Experience Kenya and serve in the 'Seat of God'!
Kenya is known as ‘Shining Star of Africa’ and the ‘Seat of God.’ It is also the second nation in Africa to receive Pais, and it has open arms for all those who wish to help the young people who live there. Kenya’s roaring lions, snorting wildebeest and trumpeting elephants puncture the silence between Kenya’s vast African sky and sunbaked plains. Fishermen haul in nets of crabs and lobsters off Mombasa’s shore, and Maasai warriors point out rhino tracks to stupefied safari-goers. It’s a place of adventure and opportunity!
Pais Kenya provides another opportunity to make a huge difference in a nation that has schools wide open to the message of Jesus. It is a country full of lightness and darkness. Full of color and vibrancy, Kenya also has a darker side with child labor being common and many of its working children laboring in agriculture. UNICEF has estimated that up to 30% of girls in the coastal areas are subject to prostitution. The causes of child labor include poverty, the lack of access to education and weak government institutions. With Pais, you can help in all three of those areas!
