Global Village Ministries Trips
We provide three different service trips each year in March, June/July and October. Each is unique and offers you different options. The clinics are provided in areas that don’t have much medical or dental care available, or the people in the area cannot afford it. Most clinics are done at schools, with some being under the trees or in churches. Our trips definitely have a Christian flavor! However, regardless of your religious beliefs we would love to have you join us.
While in Kenya you will be able to visit our biggest project THE OLMALAIKA HOME which is a home for young Maasai girls between the ages of 5 -12 that are at high risk of genital mutilation and childhood marriage.
All three of our trips end with a weekend spent in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The Reserve is probably the most famous and most visited Reserve in Kenya. It offers breathtaking views, and extraordinary density of animals including "the Big Five" (lions, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros) and many varieties of plains game. An impressive feature is the annual migration of wildebeests, (over 1.5 million of them migrate), zebras and gazelles from the plains of the Serengeti that cross the Tanzanian border and rivers to reach the Mara's grasslands from late June through early October, tracked by predators: lion, leopard, cheetah, and hyena, and circled by vultures as their journey unfolds. Their dramatic river crossings are a reality for tourists visiting in early July-August.
Kenya is a warm and inviting country – the people are amazing! When you leave, your heart will always hold a part of Kenya in it. You will have made a difference and your life will be changed
