MAXWELL (Tyler, Amy, Emma, Maddie, and Cayden) serve urban boys in Kenya who are considered the least significant among the country’s more than 300,000 severely marginalized street children. This program, run in partnership with Kenyans, has been especially effective because when one of these boys is brought out of a life of drugs and physical abuse, he enters the program’s family environment and becomes prepared not only for a Christian lifestyle, but to enter a sustainable trade. Furthermore, the boys in the program receive vision to become disciple makers when they reintegrate as productive members of society.
The Maxwells aim to expand this work by encouraging and equipping East African churches to develop more outreach ministries to street boys throughout urban areas. These outreaches will be linked to similar, self-sustaining home environments and vocational training facilities for boys ready for the opportunity.
