GOYA Ministries Works to Radically Change the Slums Of Nairobi with the love of Christ

We have a story to tell you. A story of desperate poverty, corruption and tragedy followed by radical love, generosity and renewed hope.

GOYA Ministries has been active since 2006, when it’s founder and a small group of friends took a trip to Kenya. They saw unspeakable poverty first-hand in a fogotten slum called Mitumba - a Swahili word meaning “cast off” or “worthless” - and decided to do something about it.

Where we work


The largest urban slum in all of Africa and one of the largest in the world,. Kibera is home to over 250,000 people, who are spread over just 2.5 kilometers (1.55 miles) of land. Kibera houses just over 200 of GOYA/REM’s primary (elementary) students and their families.

What Others Say

I have been to Kenya multiple times and seen the impact of this work first hand. Every time I go back I'm blown away with the difference GOYA is making in kids lives. That's why our family sponsors multiple children and we will be returning to serve in Kenya in the future. This ministry is money and time well spent!
