With continued growth, we are looking for missionaries and teams to serve in various capacities.
TEAM SIZE: Ideal team size is 8-13 members, 13 being the upper limit due to lodging and vehicle limits.
LOGISTICS: Rehema for Kids will arrange background checks and in-country transportation (for a nominal cost). Airfare and insurance will be each missionary's responsibility; however, we can share some great ministries that specialize in missionary travel logistics.
AIRFARE COSTS: Airfare costs will vary depending on the season but generally range from $1,200 to $2,000.
IMMIGRATION COSTS: Each person must have a valid passport that does not expire within the next six months. Missionaries will work with our staff to recommend the best visa for your plans. Visa costs range from $50 to $160.
FIELD COSTS: Lodging: $25 per person per night (not to exceed $300)

We are actively looking for a married couple(s) to serve as assistants. Volunteers will assist the children's home directors in running the organization. This may include administrative office work and reporting, maintenance, supervising Kenyan staff, and other tasks. Volunteers will stay in a small efficiency apartment on the property. Couples are welcome to stay for one to three months at a time, with the opportunity to extend their service to long-term or permanent positions.
With approximately 210 children on campus, our missionaries and staff can always use a hand! Potential projects could include caring for infants, toddlers, and school-aged children, hosting a campus-wide craft or soccer tournament, tutoring students as they prepare for their national exams, work as a teacher's assistant, or teach a creative writing workshop. The possibilities are endless!
As our children are approaching adulthood, they will begin exploring careers. What better way to understand careers than to be taught by a professional? Share your skills with a hands-on training in auto mechanics, welding, information technology, carpentry and administrative/office work.
We always have a need for construction teams! Multiple teams are needed to assist in completing a director’s house and technical training center. We also welcome church groups (e.g. painting, general repairs, etc). Teams will work with Kenyan staff onsite.
We need technical experts to help us maintain our solar panels, electrical, sewer treatment plant maintenance, borehole maintenance, horticulture/farming, dairy and mechanics.
The safety and well-being of the children at In Step Children’s Home is our number priority so all missionaries and mission team members will go be required to undergo a background check.

The Maasai Mara is the most renowned safari park in Kenya. Famous for its great herds of plains’ game – including its exceptional population of Maasai lions, African leopards and Tanzanian cheetahs – it’s also the best place to see the Great Migration: the annual movement of zebra, gazelle and wildebeest to and from the Serengeti in Tanzania.
Ol Pejeta Conservancy
The Ol Pejeta Conservancy is easier to access on a limited schedule than Maasai Mara and provides an “innovative, tangible, sustainable conservation
for wildlife and people.”
Learn traditional customs and skills such as spear throwing and Maasai dance. The Maasai are an ethnic group inhabiting northern, central and southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are among the best known local populations internationally due to their residence near the many game parks and their distinctive customs and dress. The Maasai culture is renowned for its music and dance, in which a leader sings the melody while others sing harmony on call-and-response vocals and make guttural throat-singing sounds.
And Beyond Tours | Ambolesi Tours
And Beyond Tours or Ambolesi Tours in the foothills of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro is a must-see. She comes out from the mist in the early morning, while some of the largest tuskers you’ll ever see graze at her feet, and will spoil you with huge herds drinking water from surface springs. The park is home to as many as 370 species of birds and you can expect to see zebras, wildebeest, spotted hyenas, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, buffalo, warthogs, impalas, jackals and leopards.
