For thousands of years, the Maasai people have been nomads on the vast Serengeti plain of Kenya,
herding their animals in the sparse foliage and happily living like tumbleweeds. Global climate
change now demands that they take root, a task being accomplished with the help of the International
Children’s Fund’s missionary partners.The agent of change is a devastating long-term
Serengeti drought. The missing rainfall killed off the livestock, turned their ancestral lands into a desert, and
brought them to the brink of starvation. After years of Christian ministry on the outskirts of Nairobi, Peter Kiio
knows the Maasai well. His Faith Revival Fellowship is helping a group of them learn the techniques of farming,
giving them a means of survival and potential growth for years to come.
Seeds of hopeThe first order of business is establishing a
farmstead, which is already halfway accomplished with ICF help. Pastor Kiio’s ministry has purchased a
plot of land outside Nairobi, fencing it and protecting it from interlopers. They are now at work installing a
well that will help the arid land burst into bloom. Soon the planting of seeds… provided by ICF
donors… will begin in earnest, followed by the joys of the first harvest. At every step, the ICF’s Kenyan
partners will be there for instruction, support and spiritual encouragement.This small farm will do more
than feed a few families. Its fields will be used as a school for other tribesmen, who will receive their own land and
teach their children agricultural skills.Breaking ground for freedomA generation from
now, we hope the Maasai will be proudly self-sustaining again. Pastor Kiio and his fellow Faith Revival Fellowship
workers will need to stay closely involved while the Maasai learn, an involvement made possible by the continuing
financial support of ICF’s American donors.Will you help them break ground for a new tomorrow?

Kibera SlumsThere is light in a dark place. With the help of our donors, Pastor
Kiio started a school and outreach in the Kiberia Slums. Kibera houses approximately
over 1 Million people and is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world. Water has to
be collected from the Nairobi dam and it is not clean. It causes typhoid and cholera. In most of Kibera
there are no toilet facilities. One latrine (hole in the ground) is shared by up to 50 shacks. Once full, young boys
are made to empty – they take the contents to the river where they also collect water for drinking. In
Kibera there are no government clinics or hospitals so the residents are left begging for help in the city.
Will you help Pastor Kiio continue to assit the young children of Kiberia? Help now with a tax
deductible donation to the International Children’s Fund.
