Kikuyu Kenya

How our partnership began...

Our Kenya partnership began in the summer of 2002 following a visit to Davidson from Ruth and Kagwe Muchane, elders at Sigona Presbyterian Church in Kikuyu, Kenya and parents to DCPC member Mur Muchane.  During their visit they expressed to then pastor Allen Brindisi that the church had begun to reach out and minister to many of the children in the community around the church.  Following a visit by Allen and Ann Brindisi, DCPC became involved as partners in the work of the Child Development Center at Sigona.  DCPC helped fund the construction of a new facility to house the K-8 school and it was completed in January, 2006.

In the years since 2006...

Since that time there have many trips to Kenya by DCPC members and many trips by members of Sigona to visit Davidson.  The partnership has strengthened the faith communities in both places as we have prayed for one another, challenged one another, and encouraged one another in the work to which God has called us.

After our most recent trip in 2019, DCPC helped oversee the construction of a new well which would provide clean water to the school and to the church grounds. 

Plans for the future...

Other infrastructure projects like critical school repairs, new dining facilities, and a new playground are under consideration. The road construction is nearing completion outside of the property and the church will be considering new construction once that is complete.

We continue to pray for our church partners at Sigona Presbyterian Church and for the Administration, Teachers, Students, Staff, and Families of Sigona Presbyterian Academy.
