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.
