We are happy to say that the KISOM Building Project (Kakuma Interdenominational School of Mission) is in full swing and on schedule to complete phase 1 by early January!
KISOM was established in 1997 by our refugee partner agency (United Refugee and Host Churches - URHC) and has functioned for the past 20 years without a building of their own. They will soon be able to move out of the condemned and abandoned refugee primary school in the camp (see photo below) and begin to meet in their new building!
KISOM has graduated over 1000 students since its founding. We are grateful for the privilege of partnering with God in his answer to the prayers of our refugee brothers and sisters for a school building. We are thankful for each financial partner (e.g. church, person and foundation) that has made this a reality!
