Action Ministry

Reaching africa’s most vulnerable people

Action Ministry was founded in 2004 by Peter Ochiel.  Motivated by those who stepped into his story to support him and his education, Peter’s vision is to reach people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and Action faithfully does so by reaching out to marginalized citizens and communities such as social outcasts, orphans, widows, destitute families, and slum dwellers. 

Action meets this mission in several capacities across Kenya. In Mombasa, Action works in a leper colony called Blessed Camp, providing education, medical care, church programs, and feeding programs, as well as community empowering income-generating activities. In Mombasa’s Bangladesh slum, Action runs education sponsorship programs for children and helps support their families. In Got-Osimbo, Peter’s hometown, Action has dug water wells and is planning to build a new high-school.
