IAFR in Kakuma

Field notes, perspectives, stories & updates from IAFR's work in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya

Solar, Water, & Roof

July 4, 2022
The entry to the KISOM campus.

I got more photos showing progress on the KISOM classrooms and a few other enhancements to the campus.

The roof is going on the 3 new classrooms this week!

The solar batteries have been updated in the main hall.
A large water tank has been added to the campus.
An outdoor sink for washing has been added as well.

We are thankful for how much they have been able to do to improve the campus with the funding provided.

This is a huge investment in strengthening community, faith, healing and hope in Kakuma! We are thankful to our financial partners who make it all possible.

Today's progress

June 15, 2022
The new classrooms are going up fast in Kakuma!

Our refugee partner in Kakuma refugee camp sent us this photo today via WhatsApp.

I don't know who is more excited about the progress of the 3 classrooms we're building on the campus of KISOM!

KISOM has trained well over 1,000 people in Kakuma since 1997 - offering a 3 year training program for Church leaders in the camp and from the surrounding host community.

We are so thankful for the privilege of partnering with God in the answer to their prayers for this campus and buildings.

Thanks to everyone who has partnered with us on this project as we support the vision of United Refugee and Host Churches in Kakuma!
