Swahiba Youth Networks

Kenya

Swahiba Youth Networks is a Christian Youth Organization whose primary objective is to reach young people with the message of Gospel through evangelism, discipleship, mentorship and empowerment.  Teams will work alongside pastor Peter Abungu and Swahiba to bring the gospel to the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Servant Life began a partnership with Swahiba in 2014 and is looking forward to great days of missions and ministry ahead! You can learn more about Swahiba here.

At the end of your trip, you'll have the opportunity to shop in some of the local Nairobi markets.
