Short-term Mission Trips:

Short-term missions trips range from 1 week to 8 months. Volunteers are welcome as individuals and join our weekly outreach programs and work in areas of praise and worship, games and crafts and sharing the love of Christ with the most vulnerable youth of Kenya and beyond, many of whom live in the slums of Nairobi. Volunteers also work in a project of their choice. You can either volunteer in orphanages, children’s’ homes, join a sports ministry outreach to street children, teach in a school for orphans and vulnerable children in the slum, teach in a school for children with disabilities, or work in a medical clinic.

This is the foundation of our organization. The way we feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, teach and take care of the poor, are all done through our missions work. If you wish to support us, or even join us on one of our mission trips, please contact us at info@tropicalvacationsinc.com or +254 721 261 674

Operation Rescue: The Nest
Working with the courts and the Kenyan Children Services, Nest social workers strive to locate the best form of protective custody for each child while its mother is imprisoned. If no willing family member is located, the Nest accepts custody of the child and begins the process of integrating the child into the ever-changing community of the Nest. The accumulated affects of poverty, neglect and/or abuse, plus sadness of being separated from mom are often evident in children when they arrive at the Nest. The staff works hard to comfort and welcome each child. Daily chores, school and the activity of the Nest becomes the child’s new routine. The Nest also ensures that each child gets to visit its mother in prison. Dinner and overnight in Nairobi.
