Thank you for helping build a new trade school building at the One27 Academy for our
friends in Kenya! We reached our goal of $50,000, which is enough for a new building having
4 vocational training classrooms
Our Mission is to support and enhance the ministry of the One27 Academy in Naivasha, Kenya as it seeks to develop, educate and equip young men and women to be godly contributors in their communities after graduating high school. The academy is a low-cost Christian boarding school for 9th-12th graders.

From Here We Rise
One27 Academy Motto
The four vocational training classrooms will be used for the high school students at the Academy to learn marketable trades before leaving high school, which will open up job opportunities for them and enable them to begin a career. While the building can be started with part of the donations, it can only be completed when we raise the entire amount. Your donations will 100% go toward ensuring the entire building will be completed. There are different levels of donations listed below with the items that they can pay for. If any categories are funded in excess of the need, we’ll be shifting the money into where needed most.
Please pray about how God is leading you regarding this worthy cause. Proverbs 19:17 “He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord. And the Lord will repay him for his good deed.”

175 students are living at the One27 Academy, most of whom have families paying for the cost of their attendance. All the teachers are Kenyan-certified, as are the curriculums taught. They have student notebooks, but no books. They have electricity, but had no projectors or computers until they were brought from Grace Community over the past four years. By our gifts, we have made it possible for the students to become familiar with technology that is not available in most Kenyan schools today and enabled the teachers to teach much more effectively. Their academy motto is: “From Here We Rise” and the students truly want to rise to become effective citizens in Kenya, rather than living in poverty as so many do in their country.
