Field notes, stories, perspectives and updates related to our ministry in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya
June 13, 2022
It's been encouraging to receive photos from our partner in Kakuma refugee camp documenting the construction of the 3 classrooms IAFR is adding to the campus of the Kakuma Interdenominational School of Mission (KISOM).
I remember many years ago, watching one of the local leaders take a stick and draw the vision for the school into the mud floor of a refugee church. How wonderful to participate in God's answer to their prayers!
As the Director of KISOM said it well in a WhatsApp message to me earlier today:
Glory to the almighty God,who touches the hearts of donors for this great work!

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!
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.
