About Turkanaland

The Turkana people live in the northwestern region of Kenya. The Turkana have maintained their undiluted traditional way of life. They are distinguished as being great survivors, living in harsh and inhospitable terrain.


Share has reached and planted churches among 400,000 Turkana people since 1997 within a geographical region encompassing a population of 700,000. We hope to reach the total 1M Turkana population in the shortest time possible.

Tomorrow's Church

As the Kingdom spreads in the hearts of men and women in Turkanaland, Share’s ministry to children in every church we plant will ascertain continued growth and spread of Christian faith for generations to come.


Learn more about how we equip the people to spread the Gospel and lead the churches through the Share International Missions Institute (SIMI), Bible Pathways, and training Sunday School Teachers to plant the seed of faith into the children.

Spiritual Growth

“Disciples making disciples” is the goal in every church plant throughout Turkanaland. The churches see over 46,000 worshippers combined each month where ministries to men, women, and children take place, teaching them through the Word of God.

Adult Literacy

Share works toward reducing illiteracy in Turkanaland through the Adult Literacy ministry. The purpose is to enable the people to read the Bible for themselves. Share has 24 ongoing Adult Literacy classes in villages throughout Turkanaland.

Short Term Outreach & Relief Mission (STORM)

Since 1997, Share has ministered to the Turkana people through annual short-term mission trips made up of believers in the U.S. and Africa. The purpose of these trips is to expose and sensitize participants to God’s love for another people-group and discover how they can use their God-given talents & gifts to minister to others.

Nurturing Through Partnerships

Share partners with other Christian organizations that facilitate ministry to the whole person through the provision of physical, cognitive, economic, and structural fabric.

Sponsor a Missionary

You can make a difference in the lives of those who live in the villages in Turkanaland by sponsoring a missionary, allowing him to spread the Gospel to unreached villages and lead the church in the Word. Consider partnering with a missionary today.
