Chepnyal is the most rural of all the VLM sites in Kenya. Chepnyal is located in a lush, mountainous area approximately 3 hours from Kitale. In Chepnyal, VLM wear many hats. They may facilitate a summer camp for children and/or teach classes on business to local women entrepreneurs, lead a spiritual retreat for community members, assist in training for students from the local Poly-Tech college, or facilitate other projects that are deemed necessary by the Daughters of Charity.
“I have felt more in this last month—more joy, laughter, and the presence of the Spirit—than in the last year of my life. Experiencing the incredible hospitality of the Chepnyal community has transformed my entire outlook on how I live daily. The incredible generosity of the community has inspired me to love more and be open to having transforming experiences.”
