What is Zoe?

ZOE is a greek word found in the New Testament meaning "Life"

Zoe Ministries shares LIFE through CHRIST to orphaned and vulnerable children through strategic orphan care initiatives. We also facilitate clean water wells, secure housing for widows, education enhancement, food security, and income generation in Kenya.

Our Pledge
Every person we serve will:

Be taught the Gospel and how to live as followers of Jesus Christ.
Have their specific physical needs met through clean water, shelter, and/or food. Receive training and resources needed to provide a foundation for their future. Experience continued communication and support from our Christian community.

Our Values
God First

Colossians 3:17 "And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.

Love Your Neighbor
Luke 6:31 "And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them."

our work

More than 3 million
children are orphaned or vulnerable in Kenya today.
Children who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused are rescued and brought to Zoe to live in a loving home. Each home has a set of house parents who raise every child as their own by showing them the love of Jesus Christ. Children are provided education, healthcare, and Christian counseling as they grow under our care.
8 million widows
comprise nearly 15% of kenya's population
Being a widow in Kenya leads to unbelievable vulnerability such as social discrimination, decreased civil rights, and even abuse. We come alongside widows in their affliction to meet their physical needs while ultimately pointing them to Christ. By providing housing, food security, and continued community, we are making an impact on the countless uncounted women in Kenya.
1.3 million
elementary-school-aged children in kenya
do not attend school
We believe that a quality learning environment is critical to increasing student attendance, improving engagement, and enhancing overall literacy outcomes. Building a new classroom is only the start of a transformative education experience. We don’t just build and leave, but rather maintain relationships with each school to ensure longevity and an overall improved education outcome for their students.
1.8 million
people in kenya face critical levels of food insecurity
There are a number of ways through which Zoe Ministries provides sustainable resources to our community in Kenya including food security and job training programs. Because of the farming and greenhouse projects put in place throughout our region, we are able to harvest crops for our children and staff to eat on site at Zoe. Not only that, but these crops also supply the nearby community. Our neighbors now have a sustainable source of food for their families as well.
16 million
people in Kenya lack access to clean water while
24 million lack access to basic sanitation solutions
Now, more than ever, clean water is vital to the health and wellbeing of people around the world. Access to clean water provides a ripple effect of life-changing benefits. Clean water decreases the prevalence of deadly waterborne illnesses such as typhoid and cholera, thus decreasing mortality rates. It allows children to spend more time in school rather than walking miles everyday to fetch water, enhancing their education and improving their future. Access to clean water also empowers women to earn an income, grow food, and provide for their families instead of spending hours a day fetching water. By digging clean water wells in communities with the greatest need, Zoe is meeting a basic need that will impact generations to come.
