In addition to working with churches to provide food, shelter, medical assistance, education, and employment for vulnerable widows and children, the ministry trains churches and lay leaders in understanding and caring for Muslim neighbors.
After her graduation in 2015, Zippy received a PressOn Grant to expand the work of the Blessed Peace Foundation’s Children Rescue Center and develop a more robust child theology, as children often suffer the most amidst interreligious conflicts.
Zippy’s ministry helps train Sunday school teachers, primary school teachers, and pastors and church leaders to engage the Muslim community, and especially to care for and mentor orphans, street children, and children rescued from prostitution and child labor.
Currently, the Blessed Peace Foundation provides care and education for 170 children in Eastern Kenya, and is planning to establish a high school.
