Deliverance church is home to about 175 members regularly. It is located right in the middle of the Kiganjo slum area. The partnership agreement with DCK was signed in December 2010, and the two workers, Patrick and Ann, were hired and trained during January 2011. They began recruiting the first group of clients in February 2011, and this group of 77 clients (representing 272 children!) graduated in January 2012. A second group of clients began the program in March 2012.
Thika is a populous area on the Northern outskirts of Nairobi, located along the main highway to Nyeri and Northern Kenya. It holds several sizable factories and is surrounded by large pineapple farms. Kiganjo is a large slum on the east side of Thika. The slum holds many people who migrated from Muslim areas in the Northwestern parts of Kenya looking for work in Nairobi.
Ann and her husband Kamau have one son. Before being hired by CFA, she worked in a local clinic/dispensary. Ann does not see her work as a job, but more of a calling. She shows her passion in her work every day in the way that she relates and cares for the clients.
Patrick and his wife Mary Njeri have one daughter. He is an assistant pastor at the church and formerly worked as a businessman in the Kiganjo area before CFA. He has stepped in many times to preach and lead the congregation when the head pastor is away.
