After hearing God's persistent call to ministry in Mathare, Wallace and Mary Kamau founded MOHI in the year 2000 with an initial enrollment of 50 kindergarten students. Over the years, God has blessed the ministry through new partners and rapid growth. Today, over 21,000 students attend school in the 25 centers and transformational programs reach thousands more.
