It was in the fall of 2007 that we met for the very first Can Do Kids Club. We were part of a small, rural church looking for a Bible-based, flexible and affordable program to reach children and their families. As we developed and produced curriculum for ourselves, we ran across other small to midsize churches that had similar circumstances and started to share our resources and ideas.
In 2011, God opened a wide door to ministry in Kenya - which led to the creation of Can Do Kids International. We met a Kenyan, Karanja Mburu Wamatangi who connected us with an indigineous denomination of 2,000+ churches and more than 3.4 million members in Kenya. They were looking for a way to reach children, checked out our program and thought it could be adapted. In addition, Wamatangi invited us to partner with him in meeting the desperate physical needs of public school students, faculty and their communities in central Kenya, opening the door for opportunities to share God's love.
God continues to confirm His direction as many doors have opened, especially in the past few years, with interest in Can Do Kids from US-based churches, ministry leaders in Ukraine and believers in the Philippines.
We are blessed to be on this great adventure with God and look forward to where He will take us in coming years!
