About Lare: Sister Rose Wangui grew up in the village of Lare, Kenya, attending high school and working with the Sisters of Mercy at the Mercy hospital in the Rift Valley. Her vision and faith led her to create The Mercy Project – a multi-phased effort that included building and funding a water well that now provides clean water, and a health clinic that provides basic medical care for the families of Lare, Kenya. The third phase of her vision is the building and completion of a secondary school dedicated to the empowerment and education of girls. The Mother of Mercy Girl’s Secondary School is open to all girls ages 13-18 in the surrounding area of Lare and Nakuru County, providing room and board, and strong foundation of education. As of February 2014, the school has enrolled 400 girls.
What to Expect: Commissioned By Christ missionaries will be involved with any of a number of projects, including repairing houses for needy families in the surrounding villages, working on construction initiatives to improve the basic sanitary needs, delivering food and/or clothing, and much more! This will be a 10-day mission trip, which includes travel days. Please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
