Nairobi, Kenya—Two Kentucky Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers spent five days in March on the outskirts of slums in Nairobi, Kenya, training a group of nationals to weld. Two-thirds of the group that they trained were women.
Through Baptist Global Missions and Kentucky DR, and by partnering with a local pastor, church and school, Bruce Bayes and Matt Stickel taught the group of 13 some of the basics of welding. They will, in turn, use their training to not only support their families, but also to draw an income for their church. The group works and operates cooperatively for the good of their church and community.
