We are a short term mission to Norak Kenya to work with AfricaHope to assists communities in gaining access to water and exploring alternative livelihoods in farming, protecting clean water wells and natural springs, and learning proper animal husbandry. We also work with schools, churches and farmers’ groups to restore the environment through tree planting and agroforestry
* As HIV/AIDS ravages through the continent of Africa, the number of orphans is constantly increasing - threatening to wipe away an entire generation. Government systems haven’t succeeded in meeting the ongoing needs. Poverty is also forcing many children to the streets. AfricaHope has established a multi-component program to meet the holistic needs of these children.
Most Maasai living in a rural areas do not have access to basic medical care. Some are faced with at least a 12 mile walk to the nearest clinic. In these areas we see oppression in the form of preventable diseases, yokes in the form of water and food scarcity. We see mamas who are destined to lose at least one of their children before the age of 5 because they do not know how to prevent something like diarrhea
