2020 TRIP DATES
JAN: Nairobi, Kenya
The founders will be traveling to Kenya to work directly with our upcoming BFR Scholars, students who have graduated from high school. We will be working with them to counsel, encourage and decide their next steps for their futures. They will also be working with their BFR staff/Kenya side in team building activities and more!
MARCH: Western Kenya, jiggers
This team will be partnering with a group of our BFR Scholars to serve in Western Kenya in a remote village called Sanducia. The focus of the trip is to remove jiggers, which are fleas that embed in the skin of a person. This can cause the person pain and other medical conditions. We bring a team into this village to bring relief by removing jiggers and education through take home kits provided to affected families.
APRIL: Nairobi, Kenya
BFR will be partnering with Life Church to lead their congregation to serve with our partners in Nairobi! Our team will be serving at Wings of Life School and Pehucci Children's Home. The mission of the team will be determined as the team builds and see the different skill sets of the team!
JUNE: Nairobi, Kenya
This team will be serving in Nairobi, Kenya with out partners at Wings of Life School and Pehucci Children’s Home. The focus of the trip will be on preparing for Ignite Summer Camp! This team will work with BFR Scholars, hype up BFR Kids for camp and help Ignite be the best it can be! The majority of the time will be spent to encourage and mentor BFR Scholars and the children within the schools we serve.
AUGUST: Ignite Youth Camp
This is a select team to help facilitate Ignite Youth Camp for our BFR Kids in Nairobi, Kenya. This camp is special because we are able to take the kids out of their slum and school to enjoy an amazing camp location at BlueSky. The kids get three hot meals day, swing and climb on the high ropes course, swim, play soccer and so much more!
