Kenya – Girls Rescue Home 25-663
Country/Region: Africa, Kenya
This is a refuge for Christian girls at risk in the context of traditional African religions. Many young Christian girls seek help to escape from situations such as being forced into a polygamous marriage with a much older man, or female genital mutilation at puberty. Some are brought to the home by mothers who have become Christians and want to protect their daughters. Sometimes the girls are themselves converts to Christianity. Barnabas Fund is helping with running costs for this growing ministry.
