WELLS OF JOY
Changing Lives Through Education
Wells of Joy exists to glorify God in the service of the families of the Lunga Lunga slums in Nairobi, Kenya. Our primary means of service is to provide a Christ-centered, high-quality education for children aged infant to 8th grade. We aim to offer a safe environment where these children can be fed, educated, discipled, and given the tools to escape the perils of their surroundings.
At Wells of Joy, we seek to address the spiritual and educational needs of the community by using our facility as a church and a school. Our mission is to:
Ministering to people who live in the slum is unlike any other ministry. Life in the slum is a daily struggle with utter poverty and its degrading and dehumanizing impact. Because the most basic needs for life are so scarce many parents struggle to provide for their families while sheltering them from the negative influences surrounding them.
We believe lives can be changed by offering hope, support, and encouragement through education.
Our Ministry Serves Over 300 Children And Their Families:
We believe that the children of the Lunga Lunga slums deserve the tools and resources needed to develop their full potential. This will enable them to grow in hope and confidence, empowering them to positively impact their families and community.
This is critical not just for the slums of Nairobi, but for the entire country of Kenya. The overwhelming lack of quality education is having a devastating impact on children and communities across the country.
Kenyan Education Crisis:
You Can Make a Difference! Those who live in the slum are still God’s creation. They are good people who need to experience the love of God with a helping hand.
