Lakeview Africa Gospel Church in Nakuru, the second-largest city in Kenya, established a ministry to help rehabilitate street kids in their city of 1,000,000 people. First, they started a drop-in center in the city, where street kids could get food, clothing, showers, counseling, and tutoring. For those who showed a serious interest in rehabilitation, a farm plot was purchased near the town of Salgaa, fifteen miles from Nakuru. Here the boys receive vocational training and a place to stay during school holidays. (Most of the boys attend government boarding high schools.) The school is operated by a non-governmental organization set up by Lakeview Church. Dr. Reuben Lang’at was senior pastor at Lakeview Church for seven years, during which time the street boys’ program was started.
Sammy Mwai is the director of God’s Children Ministries, an outreach to street boys in the city of Nakuru, Kenya. Concerned for the kids who lived in the streets of their city, the congregation of Lakeview Africa Gospel Church established a drop-in center near downtown Nakuru where street kids could receive food, clothing, shelter, counseling, and an opportunity to hear the Gospel. Those boys who make a commitment to leaving their old lifestyle and getting back into school qualify to move out to a farm near Salgaa, fifteen miles from Nakuru, where Sammy, his wife Wanjaa, and their staff provide mentoring, counseling, and vocational training for the boys. On their 12-acre plot, they grow flowers for export to Europe, which underwrites the operational costs of the program.
