Since 2009, Husika-Afrika (formerly The Urban Hope Project) has been committed to answering God’s call to be His hands and feet to the least, the last, the lost and the lonely in our in the communities; sharing practical faith, hope and love; in Kenya and Africa.
We do this mainly through trained volunteers, committed to serving God through others. Many young people and women connect with Husika-Afrika in variety of ways; including daily, weekly and monthly meetings, special events, holidays, community projects and training programs.
In 2017, we changed our name to Husika-Afrika, basically to; – Capture the wider and long term vision that we feel God is directing and leading us to. – Contextualize our identity.
In Kenya, and most parts of Eastern Africa, swahili is widely used as a language for communication. Hence, we felt changing our name to Swahili; we are coming closer to home. The word Husika means to get involved (in something). In this next face of our work and ministry, we feel God is calling us to involve more people, partners and communities more engaged in inspiring chnage and transformation.
Our previous name served us well and we want to thank everyone who was part of us then. We ask you to join us in this new wagon and get involved even more. We have more programs and projects across Kenya and beyond, and so everyone has something at Husika-Afrika.
For people who fell in love with the Urban Hope Project, we are pleased to let you know that Urban Hope now becomes a major project of Husika-Afrika, and will continue coordinating some programs that we initially run, maybe a bit differently though.
Aren’t you excited with what God is doing?
