What We Do

To create lasting change in the poverty situation, we address four key areas:

Food & Agriculture

While most of Kenya's rural poor grow some of their own food, a lack of resources results in low yields that may feed a family during the harvest seasons, but are not adequate to sustain them year-round or to produce additional income to meet other needs.

Health & Water

Easily preventable diseases, many from the lack of clean drinking water, rob families of their strength and productivity. Simple steps in gaining clean water and basic sanitation as well as access to basic medicines result in dramatic changes within the family and community.

Income Generation

Families need to be able to generate sufficient income to meet daily needs as well as to sustain themselves during times of economic shock. Microloans and other micro-enterprise programs assist families in being able to increase earnings to meet their needs.


Education and training are cornerstones to much of the work we do to end extreme poverty. We conduct training directly and also work with other partner agencies to provide the best opportunities possible. for children, adults, and the community.

Common Fundraisers

These fundraisers are very common. We see them all the time, but that's because they are effective! While they may not bring in huge amounts of money, they consistently perform.


Other Fundraisers

Parents' Night Out—Setup a time on a Friday or Saturday night for parents to drop their kids off for 2-3 hours while they enjoy an evening out. Their payments for childcare will be a donation to Operation Kenya. This can be a great project for a church youth group, with the youth providing the childcare. Want to really make an impact? Set it up to be a once-a-month program.

Dinner Party—Invite some friends over for dinner and share with them about extreme poverty in Kenya and rally their support to make a contribution.

Your Birthday—Ask your family and friends to make a donation in lieu of a birthday gift.
