Bethel Outreach

View site

Bethel Outreach (founded in 2006) began as a daycare centre in 2006 after realizing that many children, especially the ones living with HIV from birth to 4 years, were facing nutritional and other challenges. Since then, Bethel has grown to include a complete primary school: daycare, pre-school, and primary education. Bethel serves the community through the provision of food rations to the most underprivileged members of our community. Bethel also provides weekly mentorship sessions at our school for teenagers.

Bethel Outreach Children’s Center was a welcome addition in 2012. Saba, International is the conduit through which these organizations are sponsored.

Helen Kahl

Treasurer
Helen Kahl became familiar with the needs of the children of Kenya and specifically New Dawn and the Nest back in 2007 before we visited our daughter Cathy, and her husband Tim in Nairobi. I was employed by our local public library and implored them to help set up a modest library for New Dawn. Traveling there and seeing those books lovingly placed in the humble school setting was a full circle moment. We delivered uniforms provided by our church women and cash from church members to the Nest. Witnessing what these efforts did to put smiles on the children’s faces, I was convinced God was asking me to continue to serve this ministry. I became Treasurer on the Board of Saba, International and have continued in that role ever since.

Samuel Chege

Software Engineer
Samuel Chege attended New Dawn High School from 2006 to 2010. He later joined Kenya Methodist University in 2012 and attained a degree in Business Information Technology with the help of Katherine Ward and Saba, International. Chege went back to New Dawn High School and volunteered as a computer teacher from 2017 to June 2018 as a way of giving back to the community. He was later offered to work with Obura Tongoi, founder of The Hunter Initiative with Obura as his mentor and now he's been working as a trainer in the Hunter Initiative providing software development skills to the Hunter Initiative students.
