Young Life Spoken Here

Est. 2005

Kenya has a population of approximately 48 million including 43 official tribes, meaning 43 languages and cultures. The country is divided into 47 counties, 19 of which have Young Life.

James Mungai Kamau, Matilda Kiumba and Martin Wamalwa are just three of the incredible staff serving here:

James has been involved in Young Life since 2006.  He served as regional director of East Kenya for several years before being asked to move to Tanzania to serve as a regional director there.

Matilda is one of three new regional directors in Kenya. The first female regional director for her country, she is both pioneering the way and modeling what it looks like for other young women here to be in leadership positions.

Martin has been with Young Life for 16 years as a volunteer leader, field staff, regional director and training coordinator for the Africa and Middle East Division. In October 2019, Martin was promoted to be the first vice president of Africa East, which includes overseeing ministry in Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda.
