Computer/IT specialist in Kenya

Could you use your skills in IT to make a difference in Korr?

Background:

Kenya gained independence from Britain in 1963. Since then British tourism has been a key element of Kenya’s economy, however, unemployment, poverty and crime remain high. Whilst the majority religion is Christianity, Kenya’s ethnic diversity and vast countryside means there are still many unreached with the gospel.  Korr is in a remote rugged environment in Northern Kenya.  Part of this role will be to intentionally promote and encourage outreach to unreached people groups.

Location:

Korr, N Kenya

Ministry & Type of work:

The school in Korr is in the process of developing a school/ministry website and starting a computer class.  A short termer is needed to teach computer classes, manage the web page and train others to continue this work when their assignment finishes. This work can be extended to the community. Some accounting/book keeping experience in setting up a financial system to help with the Tirrim project would be a bonus.

There are opportunities to walk alongside students and mentor and guide them into a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Qualifications & Experience:

  • A degree in IT or developing websites
  • Some past experience of teaching IT
  • A liking for sports

Start date: asap

Duration: 6 months +

FAQS

Yes, you must be a born-again Christian with an active and growing relationship with Jesus Christ and agree with AIM's statement of faith. AIM is an evangelical Christian mission agency. We work in partnership with the African church to reach Africa's unreached peoples with the good news of Jesus Christ, and to develop leaders for the fast-growing church.

The approximate cost of a placement is £600-£1,800 for 1-4 weeks, £3,000 for 3 months, £4,500 for 6 months, and £7,000 for 12 months (though this will vary depending on the country and type of placement).

Don’t forget to ask your church about ways they can help you to raise support. You can also earn the money, apply for grants, organise a sponsored event or hold an information evening about what you will be involved in. Further guidance on raising support will be given once you have been accepted onto the short term programme.

The main qualification that we seek is that you are a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and that you desire to share your faith and are proactive in doing so. We do have a minimum standard of biblical competency and, alongside your church, we will assist you in training where it is needed. Where formal and professional qualifications are concerned, this will vary from assignment to assignment and country to country. Many countries in Africa today require a university degree, or equivalent, for the purposes of obtaining a work permit.

So how do we reach into young people’s lives with the gospel? We sit with them.  We tell them that we are not just nurses or teachers, that we are Christians and that in Christ, we have found our identity. In our lostness, he found us, and he has found them too.
