TO REFLECT OUR MAKER
WHO WE ARE
Global Village Ministries (GVM) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization registered in the United States that provides medical and dental care in Kenya, plus long term projects that include educational opportunities and THE OLMALAIKA HOME - which is a home for young girls who have endured female genital mutilation (FGM) and/or child marriage or are at high risk of it.
We provide three service trips each year in February, July and October to Kenya, giving free care to those with insufficient access to health and dental care. The focus on the medical/dental trips is not on how many patients are treated or the number of teeth extracted/restored, but instead on building relationships and reflecting our Maker. Each trip is unique and gives you the opportunity to understand the culture, see the countryside, make new friends, and enjoy the amazing wildlife.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the Bible as the guide of our faith. It reveals to us God’s love and plan for our lives. Our greatest desire is to reflect our Maker.
We strive to show God's love to all and welcome people of any faith to join us. Jesus engaged in work that was for the benefit of all mankind – spiritually, mentally, and physically. He alone makes men and women whole. We want to model our lives after our Maker in character and action.
Each of us are blessed with gifts and talents that can make a difference. Together we can change the world!
