Muhuru Bay, Kenya


At the invitation of Kenyan native, Shadrack Were, a team from Captivate Christian Church in the United States visited a village in Migori County during the summer of 2013.  Having been raised in this area, Mr. Were understood the living conditions in this rural area of Kenya.      

Migori County is located in Western Kenya and borders Homa Bay to the North, Kisii to the North East, Narok to the East and South East, Tanzania to the South and South West, and Lake Victoria to the West. Migori County has a city center but the areas known as 'the rurals' are often disconnected from basic necessities such as clean water, adequate education, and adequate medical care. 

Mr. Were did not share with the team any particular needs, instead, he insisted that the team would see with their own eyes areas of need and would respond as they were able.  The team unanimously felt a burden to bring a primary school to this area due to the fact that a physical barrier of a mountain rests between this village and the nearest government school. Captivate Christian Academy now serves as home to over 200 students and employs 15 staff including cooks who prepare meals for each child every day.  This meal is often the most nourishing meal these children will receive.
