Be kind to one another Eph 4:32
A vibrant Christian witness throughout Northern Kenya with initial focus among the Turkana, Samburu, Rendille and pastoralists’ villages – an army of pastoralist children praising and worshipping the Lord.
Showing God’s wonderful kindness and love in action, underpinned by the Gospel message of reconciliation to God through his son Jesus Christ.
Commencing in 2004, with support for one Nursery School at Ngaremara, Kindfund experienced favour enabling it to develop nursery schools, a primary school, and introduce and sustain a daily meal programme for orphans at risk.
It now runs three major children’s homes at Ngaremara, Wamba and Ndikir, Laisamis, and also supports one Kenyan owned children’s home. In 2015 Kindfund established a rescue center for young girls and babies in a new Samburu area within Isiolo County and in 2016 invested in a disabled facility in Marsabit County.
Parallel to these sustainable developments Kindfund assists the local communities in other ways through education, clean water projects and supporting other vulnerable groups at risk.
The Gospel Message
All our work is underpinned by the desire that the children should know God through his son Jesus Christ and grow up to serve and witness to him as his ambassadors. The children are encouraged to know their Bible and to participate in regular evening and Sunday fellowships.
We employ a young man specifically to develop Bible knowledge with our children, with the orphans on our feeding programmes and to take the Gospel into the local schools and some church Sunday schools. This programme is currently reaching over 900 children. We give thanks that we are able to benefit from excellent free material provided by Postal Bible School based in Northern Ireland.
We have developed a strong working link with the YWAM (Youth with a Mission) base at Athi River, South of Nairobi and the YWAM management team in Kenya. They have brought international teams to assist us with annual Bible camps for around 100 of our older children and those from our supported homes. We are continuing to explore ways of further developing our relationship with YWAM to bring the Good News to the pastoralists of Northern Kenya.
In 2015, 2016, 2018 and again in 2019 we hosted a group of Christians from Northern Ireland to lead the bible camps in August.
Kindfund was established as a charity in 2004 to further the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help relieve poverty amongst some of the poorest tribes in northern Kenya, working with the pastoralist Turkana, Samburu and Rendille.
We currently use 5 tonnes of food and supplies per month, providing for 125 children in 4 homes and 250 children in nursery and primary education.
We have dug 7 wells and fitted 7 handpumps, bringing safe water to remote villages.
100% of gifts go to Kenya.
