The terror organization Al-Shabab “Young Warriors of Allah” is determined to cleanse East Africa of Christians and to kill Muslims not following the true Islam of the Qur'an. They aim to establish a Sharia government in all of East Africa and to conduct a war of terror in Kenya. Kenya is strategically important in Africa for Muslims as a base and target for terror strikes.
The Muslim areas of northern Kenya and bordering countries of Somalia and Ethiopia are restricted military regions controlled by Al-Shabab: dangerous, hard to access, and without the Gospel of Christ.
Our work in kenya:
COH’s Kenya office reaches tens of thousands of Muslims in East Africa with locally-produced literature and material aid. Hundreds have come to faith in Kenya’s Islamic north. COH cares for and disciples converts through literature, personal counseling, and discipleship training.
Our Bible correspondence course based in Nairobi, Kenya is the largest in East Africa. Letters arrive daily at our Kenyan COH center from eastern and western Africa in Kisuaheli, Oromo, Arabic, French, and English.
In the midst of severe famine and drought, more than 200 tons of corn flour were transported by COH to the hungry in this restricted military area in northern Kenya. Thousands were saved from starvation. Muslims in these completely closed villages know that Bro. Adan is a follower of Jesus Christ. While the corn flour was being distributed, an elderly woman proclaimed before all the villagers, “Your God, who has sent you, must be a good God – may He bless you!”
Goats are also given to children from poor families, so the goat milk and offspring can be sold to finance an education for the children and bridges are built to share the Gospel. The Galla goat, a special Kenyan breed, is especially resistant to the intense heat. The goat project is an important means of survival during the dry season when they can live on the vitamin-rich goat milk.

The Goat Project
The Call of Hope “Goat Project” provides a female goat to Christian families. When the goat produces offspring, they can be sold at market and the proceeds can be used for school fees and other necessary items for the children to receive their education.
Since its inception, over 10,000 goats have been provided to vulnerable children and their families in Ghana and Nigeria. Once neighboring Muslims witnessed the success of the program, they began asking for goats as well. Call of Hope then began including Muslim children in the program, which offered the unique opportunity to share the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ.
