We Believe In Solutions

The Gathering at Cocoa Village (aka The Village Gathering) is a non-denominational church and faith-based non-profit that builds self-sustainability for families and rural communities in Western Kenya by creating access to education, clean water, health care, abundant food production, secure housing, job creation, conflict reconciliation, and spiritual support.

The Power of Self-Sufficiency

We support and empower hand-selected individuals and families as they design and implement local solutions in their communities, with the goal of eliminating the economic instability that leads to illiteracy, child brides, HIV-infection, malnutrition, homelessness and subsistence living.

The Power of Education

Giving children early access, a fresh start when interrupted, and the advanced education that lifts a family out of poverty.

The Power of Inspiration

Providing hope to those seeking positive tools for growth, conflict resolution and spiritual connection, training ministers, translating books and building new thought churches.

Sustainable Farming

Supporting community farms that employ locals, feed families and generate income beyond subsistence levels.

Quality Education

Giving children early access, a fresh start when interrupted and the advanced education that lifts a family out of poverty.

Financial Stability

Customizing systems and strategies in every area of a family’s life so they move from a survival mentality to permanent sustainability. 

Spiritual Support

Providing hope to those seeking positive tools for growth, conflict resolution and spiritual connection, training ministers, translating books and building new thought churches.

Health & Wellness

Digging clean wells, installing indoor plumbing and building community hospitals for greater health and longevity.

Home Improvement

Ensuring housing security over homelessness by helping Kenyan families purchase homes and build sustainable home businesses.

Who are we?

Since 2007, The Village Gathering has transformed the lives of Kenya families and communities with self-sustaining solutions that lead to long-term independence.

How can you help?

We’re dedicated to giving people a “hand up” rather than a handout. Join us in our adventure toward worldwide sustainability with your money, time, connections and other resources.

Offset Travel Costs

I have struggled over the years with spending money to pay for travel costs getting to and from Kenya. Spending $800-$2000 on airfare, plus another $40-$70 per day on car rental, adds up to thousands of dollars that could have kept children in school, paid for another...
