Short Term Projects & Ministry Opportunities
The following projects can be completed with PACE for a short term of 2 or 3 weeks. If you have further questions and/or ideas of potential short-term projects for your team, please contact us
PACE runs week-long youth camps during the months of April, August and December at the end of each school term. Teachers and volunteers will help to lead Bible Studies, run children’s games and take care of general child needs. Your short term team may also wish to organize a theme for one of the children’s camps and bring activities, games and prizes for the camp.
Dental and Health Clinics
We encourage anyone with medical and/or dental experience (MD, nurse, dentist, dental hygienist etc) to help run workshops and/or community clinics for 2-3 weeks. You can join our medical mobile unit, on site charity dental clinic or medical clinic to assist with immunization, de-worming, dental hygiene, diabetes, ophthalmology, geriatrics and pediatric service to the community.
We have evangelism, edification and exaltation opportunities for children and orphans (6-12 years old), youth (13-19 years old), young adults (19-29 years old) and adults 30 and over. There are also opportunities to minister with us in local churches and schools from primary to high schools in music, devotions, preaching, drama, team building and sports/games such as basketball, volleyball and football (soccer). Your team may consider putting on a weekend seminar for youth on a topic relevant to Kenyan life and the Bible.
Our education outreach includes tutoring students in our small vocational school in computers, carpentry, beauty management, music, electrical installation, automotive mechanics, secretarial, dressmaking and knitting. There are also opportunities for teams to hold art and music classes for our academy aged students (grades 1 though 7) and art seminars for our Academy teachers to empower quality art classes for their students. Our aim is to identify and develop the talents, abilities and gifts that our students posses, which may not be developed under normal circumstances. Art material donations and lesson plans are always appreciated.
We also invite pastors to teach a module at PAST. For information on teaching a module, please contact Thairu Kamau at the PAST office.
