WHAT'S NEW?

We hope you like our completely redesigned website. It features larger photos and is laid out to take advantage of the wider screens in use today. This is still a work in progress so expect some minor changes in the next few months. As of now the site doesn't work on mobile devices and you will not have a good experience if you use Internet explorer as your browser. We would like feedback if there is anything that isn't working properly for you.

We have just returned from three months in Kenya and two weeks in Greece. Visit the Latest Update page to see what we have been doing.

WHO WE ARE

We are self-supported missioners – we’ve rented our home and our Roton Point unit - and we’ve lived with the local people in Kenya for the past fourteen summers.

We’ve spent time with young people that we, and many of our friends and family members, have helped to go to school. It is our hope that these graduates will get good jobs - and that they will in turn help to raise other at-risk children out of their poverty.

OUR CAUSES

Since 2005 we have been raising money for the education of children and young people and providing counseling and emotional support to them. Some are still in primary and secondary schools. Others have graduated and gone on to Universities or Technical Training Colleges. The need continues.

We are also involved in various ways with a number of schools and other organizations in Kenya.
