In Kenya, Star of Hope is working primarily to operate or to provide support for pre- and primary schools in poor areas. The aim of the Star of Hope's work in Kenya is to give children who come from poor backgrounds, an opportunity for education and better prospects.

Star of Hope is also running a prison ministry in Mombasa, Kenya. The prison mission is at Shimo Latewa. There are about 2500 prisoners in 4 different areas and the conditions are not good at all for the basic physical or the spiritual needs.

Our missionaries have prayed for many years to be able to get into the prison system and preach the word on eternal life. Last year the prayers were answered when a new prison manager was appointed and she was a believer who opened the doors to Star of Hope. Many prisoners have now been saved.
