History

Since 2009 River Ridge has been partnering with Young Life Africa in Kenya. Each year, a team from River Ridge travels to Kenya to support the work of the Kenyan Young Life staff and volunteers.  We believe that best mission work is when we partner with nationals who know the language, the culture and the people.  This is what has made our partnership with Young Life Kenya so good.  We are able to give financial support, people support, prayer support and encouragement to our friends in Kenya.  Since 2010 River Ridge has provided the financial support for James Mungai as the regional director for Kenya. In 2012, we funded the start of Young Life in the country of Burundi.  In 2014, River Ridge provided the funding for two outreach camps in Kenya where over 700 students heard the Gospel.

About the Trip

Each year, River Ridge sends a team to Kenya.  The trip typically has two parts. One part is to serve as work crew (support staff) for a Young Life outreach camp.  A second part is to work in the community and provide practical love to the people of Kenya.  In the past this has included improvement projects at orphanages, visiting schools, and providing business training.
