Kenya High School
- Jul 15 2016 - Jul 27 2016
- Thika, KE
- Southeast Christian
This trip is for High School students that have completed the HSM essay and been pre-approved to participate in this trip.
This team will have the opportunity to continue to build the partnership between the Southeast student ministry and the Thika community. The team will serve alongside the church in various activities such as working with youth and children, cleaning up in the community, home visits, evangelism, construction projects and more.
Life In Abundance's transformational development approach requires community ownership and long-term solutions. LIA partners with the local church and community leadership to determine communities’ most significant needs and then trains, supports and works alongside the local church to meet those needs well into the future.
