Fresh Inspiration is a Christian charity with a mission to transform lives through faith; restoring pride, joy and hope to generations.
Our hearts are filled with compassion and a belief that we can all make a lasting and sustainable difference to the lives of people thereby impacting on generations and reducing ongoing cycles of poverty. According to the United Nations global impact, approximately 836 million people still live at or below $1.25 per day. Beyond income alone, what matters to people is whether they are able to realise their aspirations for themselves and their families. This means having food security, access to basic services such as healthcare, shelter, food, education, and living in peaceful, stable societies.
There are 18 volunteers on this mission trip to Uganda and Kenya for 10 days to practically impact the lives of some of the poorest people in these countries by working alongside them, providing them with much needed resources and sharing the word of faith with them.
Uganda is ranked in the lowest Human Development Index and the majority of our work on this trip will be with local organisations who are focused on eradicating poverty by providing means of financial independence for the poorest and most vulnerable communities.
In Kenya a significant amount of our time will be spent in Kibera which is home to approximately 2.5 million slum dwellers. It is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the biggest in the world.
Our mission work includes:
- Helping women in improving their business skills with their local trade by running book-keeping sessions, keeping financial records and marketing (relative to their environment)
- Developing other skills as well as empowering them to start more women groups.
- Working with children living on the streets and some who are going through drug rehabilitation and family reconciliation.
- Working with children with disabilities
- Ministering at a local prison
- Teaching the Word to children at the orphanage
- Running a library set up training
Our time will be spent supporting and helping people, sharing variety of practical life skills with them and their organisations.

…I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy to many generations (Isaiah 60:15b)
