    AYA Farm Affected by Heavy Rains
    By - Mandy Stinnett Adkins - Executive Director
    When it comes to farming, rain is essential.  There have been many times when we have spoken to our partners in Africa that drought is threatening, and they are praying for rain so their crops and gardens will grow.  This year, however, the area of Kenya where AYA's farm is located has experienced heavy...

    AYA Farm Impacts Children at Candlelight Primary
    By - Alison Johnston Mistak - Director of Development
    I was fortunate to make another trip to Kenya in March to catch up with our partner schools and community projects.

    Food Crisis in Kenya
    By - Alison Johnston Mistak - Director of Development
    “There is great famine and hunger that I have never seen before. We have found ourselves trying to feed other children that are not in our programme.
