Servant Life partners with a local ministry in Nairobi, Kenya serving in the Kibera slums; taking a holistic approach that is committed to the spiritual and physical transformation of marginalized, underprivileged, and destitute communities living in the slums and rural areas. There are approximately 2.5 million slum dwellers in about 200 settlements in Nairobi representing 60% of the Nairobi population and occupying just 6% of the land. Kibera houses about 250,000 of these people. Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world.

Teams join our missionaries leading sessions of Evangelism and Discipleship Programs in schools, visiting families with Food baskets and sharing the gospel with them, ministering to Young Offenders at the Young Offenders Reception Center, speaking in Purity Clubs in High School, and organizing sports outreach sessions in the community.
