FGCK Kangemi is a medium-sized church located in the heart of the Kangemi area. Its facilities consist of a wood/tin sanctuary that seats about 200. The compound also contains a tin block building with several classrooms, from which the church runs a preschool program.
Partnership discussion with FGCK Kangemi began in the summer of 2010, and David and Esther were trained during the month of September. Official launching took place on September 26, 2010. During the following week of recruitment, over 90 potential clients were identified. Only the most needy could be addressed at first. Normal center operations began in November 2010.
Kangemi is a slum on the Northwestern outskirts of Nairobi, along the Nakuru highway. It is very densely populated and includes many residents who commute into Nairobi attempting to find work. Its high density and poverty has led to a high rate of HIV infection, which is why CFA was compelled to work in the area.
Esther Murange is married. She and her husband Charles have two daughters. She is a certified pharmacist and before working with CFA she ran a small business selling pharmaceuticals.
David Gitonga and his wife Dorcus have two daughters and one son. Before taking this job he worked as a night guard and volunteered with FGCK Kangemi. He has been involved in missions and follow up in the church for many years and has shown a big hear to reach the lost.
