Ben & Irene Hay followed their calling in 2013 to see street children and at risk children in Kenya live the life God intended for them. They aim to see children living on the streets reintegrated with families, vulnerable children supported to overcome the barriers that prevent them from completing schooling, and young people living on the streets having greater opportunities in their lives by assisting them to gain National ID cards and access to economic opportunities.
Their work is focused in the slums of Nairobi where half of the Nairobi population have been estimated to live, that covers just 5% of the whole city area. They establish library learning centres in the slums from converted shipping containers giving needy children access to improved educational resources . Children that have been reintegrated into a family are assisted with family strengthening income generation project of their choice. We stand with the family unit performing regular visits to the home sometimes up to 500 kms away, regular calls, and prayer. We share our faith in words and action.
Kenya is a largely Christian country and the Hay’s look at ways of demonstrating God’s love to encourage salvation's and for the believers to know how a Christian can show love in action.
