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.

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'm always wanting to serve someone else and exercise my gifts, and in 2015 God led me to a wonderful ministry; GOYA.Being blessed to serve in Kenya every year since, twice in 2018, my "ah ha" moment was in 2017. I was a witness to what the Lord and this ministry provided (Dental Clinic) and my heart was full and calm knowing I was where God intended me to be.
