" To give hope and opportunity to the children of Gitombo through Christ- centered education."


 For more than 9 years, PAAV International has partnered with the Gitombo community in central Kenya to empower youth in the region through education and skills training so that they may improve social and economic conditions in the community. 

“The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” – B.B. King ​

Education can change the entire course of a child’s life in Gitombo village


PAAV’S mission is to educate the underprivileged children in Gitombo village in a Christian environment by creatively tapping the potential in each child to become the person God intended them to be according to His plan and purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11; Proverbs 22:6)​


Support Our Cause

Education is “the passport to human development.” Sponsor-A-Classroom gives quality education to children. Education is the most powerful, sustainable resource to help our children change their lives and their communities. 


Be a part of the change.

Access to top school teachers, school supplies, and educational books are scarce and expensive.


PAAV Gitombo Community School has been providing education to vulnerable children in Gitombo village since 2014. For parents who cannot afford an education, PAAV Gitombo supports their child’s education for free – but, nothing is free. PAAV Gitombo School funds the learning materials, meals and teacher salaries.

Baraka means blessing.This house has indeed been a blessing to us especially during the rainy season. 

Barbara, a PAAV member in Ireland was used by God in making Baraka House a reality!

We now have a multi-purpose house that today functions as a dining room, community room, and Chapel.  

God bless Barbara and all of you who have contributed to make a lasting difference at Gitombo Coomunity Schoolthrough PAAV. The Kitchen is adjacent to Baraka House. Soon we will have  stoves installed!
