We all need the support of friends and family to achieve this goal of Transforming Africa, One Life at A Time. Fundraising is inviting people to participate, and transform Africa, with you. Through prayer, helping you host an event, and/or giving a financial gift, together, you will be transformed, and you will see lives transformed.  

We would love to see you passion for relieving suffering in Kenya married with a passion you have right here in the United States. Today, you can start a fundraiser that will Transform Africa. Whether you're completing in a race, challenging your friends on Facebook, or coming up with your own creative idea, your passion will help those in Kenya. Get Started Now! You can select an option below or come up with your own idea!
