Nairobi Urban Poor (Hope Partnership)
Our Nairobi Urban Poor Outreach team partners with Kenyans from the slum communities in serving the poor of the capital city. We use Community Health Evangelism, a proven program that assists the urban poor and brings transformation through available resources, training, a microfinance program, optimism, and faith. We work specifically with Missions of Hope International, where our child sponsorship program provides education, clothing, and adequate nutrition to the orphans and vulnerable children in Mathare, one of the worst slums in Africa. Since 2005, when CMF first partnered with Missions of Hope, CMF’s child sponsorship program has quickly increased to well over 7,000 children and now also expanded into a remote tribal area in northern Kenya called Turkana. Hope Partnership brings together the CMF Nairobi Urban Poor team, Kenyans, U.S. churches, and others to address the crushing problems of poverty on a community level.

Kenya Catalyst team
The members of CMF’s Kenya Catalyst team (KCAT) work in partnership with Community Christian Church (CCC), the indigenous church planted and discipled by CMF missionaries among the Turkana and Maasai since 1977. CCC now numbers more than 10,000 believers in more than 160 congregations spread over seven counties across Kenya. These believers come from the semi-arid scrub of rural Turkana, the small towns on the Maasai plains, and the dense shanties of Kibera, Kenya’s largest urban slum. All are from disadvantaged backgrounds, yet all are loved by our Lord.

KCAT envisions a Christ-centered church led by spiritually mature national disciples, actively crossing barriers from faith to non-faith. With this in mind, KCAT partners with CCC in ways such as the following:

  • Leadership training
  • Literacy and ESL
  • Water projects and community gardening
  • Aquaponics
  • Materials production and curriculum development
  • Community Health Evangelism training
  • Church building construction
  • Child sponsorship
  • Medical clinics

Community Health Partners (Maasai)
CMF has a long-standing partnership with an extensive medical ministry originally planted by CMF missionaries among the Maasai tribe. The eight medical clinics are now run by Maasai Christian health professionals and treat tropical diseases, immunize children and combat HIV/AIDs with testing, counseling, medical treatment and home-based care. CHP now supplies more than 80 percent of the primary health care needs for the Narok sub-county of Kenya.
