Areas of focus
SOHI is a Christian centered non-profit. As such, our motivation and the inspiration for our work in Kenya is our love for Christ and our desire to be His ambassadors in the world for the accomplishment of His purposes. During His time on earth as a man, Jesus demonstrated His unfailing love for the marginalized and hurting people of the world. He cared about and ministered to their physical, emotional, and most importantly the spiritual needs. The fundamental objective of His coming to earth was to provide the means for all mankind to be reconciled and be in restored relationship with the one true God. SOHI seeks to emulate that level of love. We are in community with the Kenyan people–no better and no worse.
The organization is viewed by the government and community members as a beneficial and effective partner. SOHI’s mission, vision, and approach are focused on the organization being a catalyst to helping local Kenyan communities to develop affordable, self-reliant and sustainable solutions.
