Rev. Chrispinus and Joan Okumu

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

We begun in 1988 as a Feeding Center and Nursery School, with five children who had been abandoned by their parents at Kibera. The place was a marshy dumpsite that was a haven of thugs and a dumping ground for aborted babies. It was a long struggle to reclaim the land which today hosts the best school in Kibera slums.

Rev. Chrispinus Okumu and his wife Joan have exemplified the call on all Christian's lives by caring for the poorest of poor. What started with just 5 orphans has grown to educating and feeding over 500 children daily, various community members, planting 26 churches in the Bush country, and raising up a national champion volleyball team.

"Education is the most precious gift a nation can give to its children, and a church can give to its members. Whether you live in an up-scale estate, middle-class estate, or even city slums, you need education in order to live and socialize with other people harmoniously." - Rev. Chrispinus Okumu
