Our minister, Rev. Helen Kirk, with ten others are experiencing at first hand the slums of Kenya and the work there of Karibuni Children. They have been spending time working alongside local people and carers in some of the charity's projects. They have also been in the classrooms with children and teachers and visited some of the children's simple homes. For most of the time, they have been staying with local people and learning something from them of their lives.
Many members of past groups are still in touch with their hosts and many have described the experience as life-changing. To see how the charity has given life-changing opportunities for so many youngsters from Kenya's streets and slums, click here for their website.
