Safari Mission FAQ’s

Safari Mission was founded in 2011 in Broken Arrow Oklahoma. According to their Custom Embroidery Greenville page on Enhancing Trust in Ministries they are “all about training leaders and transforming people in East Africa.” Also according to their website Christianity is a mile wide, but an inch deep. In other words, there are many people who like to give aid, but do not leave a lasting impact. Safari Mission seeks to create sustainable and long term growth by both providing educational tools and transforming leaders to maintain the progress that is made. “Change comes from within” is a core principle of Safari Mission. The solution is to empower the people to fix their problems.

The impact Safari Mission seeks to make is lasting and long term, not just giving a handout and leaving. They seek to avoid creating a cycle of dependency that is all too common in areas that receive large amounts of foreign aid. At Safari Mission almost all the work is done exclusively by Kenyans. Finance officers, school administrators and managers are all African. Safari Mission seeks to empower the locals, by providing support, but allowing them to help their own communities.

They also help children by giving a direction for parents to provide a stable structure for their children. The children are then able to go to school, have access to better clothes and nutrition. The goal is to “Give them a hand up, instead of a hand out.”

Safari Mission’s entire focus is to provide a foundation through the Bible and the power of Christ. They achieve this with the implementation of Bible schools across Kenya. The students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including, but not limited to businessmen, pastors, teachers, doctors and government officials. They also host a yearly conference, a ministry retreat and operate a Christian book distribution center. In addition Safari Mission is implementing church coaching for pastors. Education through the power of Christ and the Bible is the most sustainable way to help those most in need, Safari Mission seeks to accomplish that goal with these programs and the help of fellow Christians.
