We work to embody the change we wish to see in the world

"We exist to nurture curiosity in children using integral models to enhance the achievement of their utmost God-given innovative potential."

ByGrace Trust is registered as a charitable non-profit organization in Kenya (as a registered Trust) and in the US (as a 501 (c)(3)). It was established in 2004/5 when the founders, Stephen and Rosemary Mbogo, started addressing the dire needs of orphaned and destitute children in Nairobi slums of Kenya, where they were serving and had already served, through the Living Word Church, for five years.
To give orphaned and destitute children a bright hope for the future and see them flourish.
To demonstrate the compassion of Christ by providing poor and parentless children with a nurturing family environment that fosters their well-being, security, and personal growth through education, mentoring, and partnership with gospel-minded believers worldwide.

“...Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it...”
Mark 10:14–16
