Crafting newspapers and magazines into sellable items not only saves otherwise wasted materials, it also provides an income for impoverished families in developing countries!

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Your crafts and hobbies can be turned into a tangible way of sharing God's love and help break the cycle of poverty.

LEAMIS can help you plan a trip to fit your time frame – both in when you would like to make your trip and how long you would like to stay.


A basic workshop on making sellable items with newspapers and magazines can have a huge impact on the people living in the community where you will be working. In addition to ideas such as those shown in the photos, the workshop can be expanded to include paper mache.

In addition to learning a new skill, ideas will be shared on how to market the items made.The long-term goal of this workshop is to help students learn how a craft can be turned into a self-sustaining "cottage industry."

LEAMIS will help you with your workshop agenda, craft ideas, and marketing possibilities.

While you are in Kenya, you may want to extend your trip a few days and take advantage of their many safari opportunities.

Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.

Transformation addresses the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.

Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
