Regional vision
Our dream is to inspire a movement of movements all over East Africa and beyond. Our aim is transformation, not mere information; discipleship, not mere religion.

Environment
East Africa has a pleasant climate. The political environment is relatively stable in much of the region, but there are pockets where the situation is more tenuous. Nairobi is an international hub of activity in the region and has many Western amenities. Other travel in the region may take the worker to much rougher and more rustic conditions. Main religions include Christianity, Islam, and traditional religions.
