In 2007, the Foundation for Peace began working hand-in-hand (mkono kwa mkono) with different organizations in Nairobi, Kenya.
The FFP helped to build a school building for the ByGrace children’s home, allowing for 125 more children to attend as part of ongoing work with the ByGrace Trust, in support of the ByGrace Academy. With ByGrace help, FFP is able to branch out to different parts of Nairobi in need of aid.
The LivingWord Church parnters with FFP to create jobs and provide services for the community, such as free medical care for hundreds of HIV/AIDS patients. FFP helped LivingWord construct a larger church to be used as a place to provide more services to the people of Nairobi.

2016 is the 10th anniversary of the FFP in Kenya! A mission trip leaves from Newark, NJ, for Nairobi, arriving on March 18 and returning on March 28. Participants will help with the building of the community center in Mathare North, volunteer in the local health clinics, teach classes at the By Grace Home School which now includes a high school, and have the joy of worshipping on Easter Sunday in the newly built Living Word Church.
Financial assistance is available based upon need. Contact the FFP Director of Global Mission at email or 973-219-9306 for information. Contact Betty regarding financial assistance.
Each summer, the Nairobi-Newton Partnership Team serves in Kenya supporting schools and a health center, and sharing worship and fellowship with partner presbyteries and sister congregations. For information about future trips, contact PCM Outreach chair, Betty Darcy.
Each year, PCM collects supplies for FFP to be used in a medical clinic in the Mathare North Slum, for volunteer care-givers to provide to Kenyans with AIDS and for children in the DR, Haiti and Kenya. Needs cover the gambit from furniture and vehicles to HIV/AIDS caregiver kits to backpacks with school supplies and clothing.
