Students Outreach to Individuals in Need.
Every week our Lead Outreach Coordinator organizes a team of students from Marah Christian Primary School and takes them out into the neighboring slum of Njeru to serve the members of the community. The target group our outreach teams focus on are the families of our students and members of our Beading Program.
The purpose of our outreaches is to build one-on-one personal relationships with our community, uncover the needs and challenges they are facing, and work together to implement solutions.
We believe in sharing the love of God through acts of service.
On today’s outreach into the slum, our team of all-girl students went out and visited the home of Angelina. Angelina is an elderly woman who takes care of her 6 grandchildren all by herself. She is scraping by, doing all she can to earn money from cutting grass and weaving handbaskets. Four of her grandchildren are students at Marah Christian school: Edema, Edward, Farouk, and Ayala.
The team was concerned not only for Angelina but also for also Edema who was reported as missing school for almost a week now with a swollen neck. He isn’t even able to turn his head side to side. It is believed that he has an infection of some kind and so his grandmother has been treating him with antibiotics for several days.
