about

about

No matter how small, your effort can make a difference in Kenia.

When you travel with us, you'll see that any amount of compassion, in giving some money or cooperating in our projects, changes your life and the lives of others.

We are inspired by simply sharing the lives of our friends from Kenia. The dream we share at Foundation mosterdzaadje connecting with them in standing next to them. In getting to know each other and working together on projects, precious relationships blossom.

Inspired by Matthew 13:31-32, we believe that being small and fragile, gives the power to change things. No matter how small, your effort in travelling to the slums of Kenia, the one euro you have to share or the frailty of a child living on the streets can grow into perspective for the whole local community.

Our upcoming travel-project is coming in 2020!

Together with a group of volunteers we’ll be traveling to Kenya to support our local friends in building a selfsustaining community.
Our partner in this project is an organization which is run by a local ministry in Bungoma County, one of the poorest regions in Kenya.
The goals we set for our projects are primarily determined by what our local friends in Kenya need to become self-reliant. Of course, the options are limited by our financial constraints. At the very least, on each travel we attempt to build one traditional house for a local widow. This activity works great as teambuilding and is appreciated by the local community.
If you are interested to participate, we are always looking for people who want to join us in our projects!

Goals 2020:

  • Building a house for a local widow and her children
  • Buying cows*
  • Buying/building a greenhouse**
  • Giving a course in motivational interviewing, focusing on local aid workers, elders and pastoral workers***
  • If possible, buying a piece of land (necessary for the greenhouse and cows)
*) Cows are a stable source of income, largely because of the revenue of selling milk
**) A greenhouse gives the ability to produce vegetables which can be sold with good profit on the local market. If our funds do not allow in building a greenhouse, we might use the funds in buying land or cows.
***) The course motivational interviewing will be given by several psychologists who are board members in our foundation.
