Women on a mission to change lives

HELPING: Abigail Okunlola in Kenya

TWO WOMEN are encouraging young Christians to get involved in mission work through their charity United for Change.

Abigail Okunlola and Josephine Takyi led a mission trip to Kenya last year, and they want to inspire other young people to help the world’s poor.

They launched the Inspyre Programme to encourage people to help others, and have just sent 12 young Christians on a two-week mission trip to the Kibera slums in Kenya.


Whilst there, the young ‘missionaries’ will run a feeding programme for 300 children, lead HIV/Aids awareness workshops, work with orphans and widows, visit prisoners and teach income generating activities.

Josephine said: “Through the Inspyre Programme we aim to bring together like-minded people seeking to make a difference and cause an impact in the world.”

“In June, we will be holding our fundraising fashion show and launch our Eat a Doughnut campaign, which will raise funds for an outreach programme for the homeless in the winter,” said Abigail.

This will entail United for Change distributing hampers to the homeless, which contain food as well as information on churches and organisations where they can get support and training.
