Bus Services to Generate Income for School and Teachers

Nairobi, Kenya — March 6 was a special day for two Bright Hope partners – Outreach Community Church in Mathare Valley, Kenya, and Hope Church from Springfield, Illinois.

These two churches from two ends of the world were celebrating God’s faithfulness for His provision of a 51-seater bus through Hope Church to the ministries of Outreach Community Church.

The ceremony to mark the commissioning and dedication of the bus was filled with singing, dancing, acrobatic show, and words of thanksgiving to the Lord.

While watching the well-planned program with the bus at the background, I (Dotun Modupe, Partnership Developer) was reminded of the purpose for this bus. This bus will indeed breed new life into the education of the children in Mathare.

Outreach Bus Services will offer high quality transport to customers at attractive rates within the city of Nairobi and upcountry routes. A large percentage of the proceeds from the income will be used to pay the much-needed monthly salaries of the teachers who educate the kids. The remaining percentage will be reinvested to be used in future business ventures that will be of benefit to the work of Outreach Community Church.
