EMPOWERING LIVES HISTORICALLY
During Covid-19 in Kenya Set Apart Foundation has had a weekly show to empower and encourage youth in Kenya and other African countries. They share the gospel of Jesus, stories, song and spoken word, and hope. It is increasing in influence weekly!
David and Jacinta Gathua lead a team of volunteers that reach the youth in Nakuru, Kenya. We work primarily in the local high schools but also at the universities, orphanages, prisons, and with street kids.
Our passion is to see multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ. Yet many youth are living with the daily pressures of hunger, a place to live, and staying in school. Our wholistic approach helps meet the spiritual, physical, and mental needs of the youth we work with.
After working with teens for the past 15 years our passion comes from a verse in the Bible, "Know that the Lord has SET APART his faithful servant for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him." Psalm 4:3 Many youth in Kenya don't feel like God cares about them. They feel alone, abandoned, unloved. Set Apart Ventures has a passion to remind one youth at a time of God's love.
WE DO THIS FOR FREE TO ANY SCHOOL THAT DESIRE TO GIVE US A PLATFORM TO REACH THEM. THIS IS BECAUSE AS A CHRISTIAN TEAM WE ARE FAITH-BASED AND NOT INCOME GENERATING GROUP.
WE HAVE BIBLE STUDY MEETINGS EVERY TUESDAY AND THURSDAYS WHERE WE DISCUSS THE WORD TOGETHER AND GROW.
FRIDAYS ARE OUR PREPARATION DAY AND WE REPORT ABOUT EVERY SCHOOL WE GO AND THE NEEDS WE FIND FROM THE STUDENTS.
SET APART FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH LOCAL CHURCHES. We organize events with Chosen Generation Church and accountable to leadership at that church.
We parnter with the nonprofit, People Bridge, based out of Orlando, Florida, USA for leadership and financial giving. We partner together to change lives to the glory of God.
We did this while school is in session. Now we are still there for students in Whatsapp and personally.
We will then have volunteers and teachers help with small groups as we listen to teens and share hope.
David and Jacinta and volunteers meet weekly with youth to mentor and disciple youth that want to grow deeper in their faith.
The youth that are discipled are then encourage to go with the leaders and serve those in need in their own community.
