HELPING THE COMMUNITY
Ladies’ Jewelry Ministry
The Kibera New Life Church (KNLC) comes alongside women living in poverty and invests in their lives by providing job opportunities. Women are trained in making jewelry and other crafts. This ministry is based in the Kibera Slum, located adjacent to the capital city Nairobi. Kibera is the largest slum in Africa.
Who are these women? They are primarily the bread winners of the family. Most are widows or single parents whose husbands have deserted them and their children. In addition, many are even caring for orphaned children. KNLC in helping these women learn not only the skill of jewelry and craft making, but also how to plan and manage a business. By doing so they are able to create a sustainable income to support their families.
Organized Soccer League
Kibera New Life Church is reaching the youth and children through our Sports Ministry. Soccer has been prominently used as a community mobilization tool because most young people love “Fut-Bol.” At KNLC, we view it as a valuable tool. The integration of faith and learning is an essential component of the core values and mission of KNLC. This promotes cooperation and camaraderie among the youth. We see soccer as an opportunity to bring young people together to learn the fundamentals of soccer, sound sportsmanship, and to receive a firm spiritual foundation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Rescuing a Life One at a Time
The Kibera Childrens’ Choir (KCC) was established in 2015 to give a home and a voice to children exposed to homelessness and the poverty of the Kibera, the largest slum in Africa. Each child in the Kibera Children’s Choir has suffered the loss of one or both parents. All members of our Children’s Choir were born and raised in Kibera. They will sing for you and personally will tell you their stories of hope and testify how God is transforming their lives. Our desire is to see these children grow and develop into mature adults, broken lives restored, with hope for the future.
Kibera Slums is located in the city of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. It is the largest Slum in East Africa.
Most of the Kibera slums residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than U$1.00 per day. Unemployment rates are high. Persons living with HIV in the slum are many. There are few schools, and most people cannot afford education for their children. Clean water is scarce and, therefore, diseases caused by related poor hygiene are prevalent. The majority of people living in the slum lack access to running water, bathrooms, waste disposal and healthcare.
