Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya

KISOM Update

March 5, 2020

I made this short video to document how IAFR applied a grant from Urbana 2018 to put solar power, a rain water collection unit and a 4 door latrine into the school building we built in partnership with United Refugee and Host Churches (URHC) and National Council of Churches Kenya (NCCK).

The building opened a year ago and hosts a plethora of training opportunities through the year – including the theological training intensive we’ve brought here this week in partnership with Wheaton College (IL).

About IAFR in Kakuma

IAFR has been serving people in Kakuma refugee camp since 2010. About 195,000 people (mostly women and children) have found temporary refuge here from war, persecution and gross violations of human rights.

We visit Kakuma 2-3 times annually, during which time this blog is most active.

Visit the Kakuma page on the IAFR.org website to learn more!

Our Partners

We partner with United Refugee and Host Churches (URHC) - a refugee initiated association of over 160 churches from within the camp and surrounding host community.

We also partner with National Council of Churches Kenya (NCCK), an exceptional humanitarian agency.
