Jacob’s Well is committed to meeting the needs of justice in our community, our city, and around the world. Our local outreach is focused on the Argentine community in Kansas City and our global outreach is focused upon the construction and development of Asilong Christian High School in Pokot, Kenya.
Partner with our friends in the Kansas City, Kansas community of Argentine.
We host food distribution events each month that provide food to hundreds of households through a partnership with Harvesters. For more information contact Emily Rietema.
Jacob’s Well has partnered with the Asilong community in West Pokot, Africa.
It started with a project to build ten water wells to a drought stricken region.
We are now working to continue to develop Asilong Christian High School
LOOKING TO GET INVOLVED? HERE’S WHAT’S CURRENTLY AVAILABLE:
MONTHLY FOOD DISTRIBUTION
Our Harvester’s food distribution events happens on the second Wednesday of the month from 1PM-4:30PM, and we are always looking for volunteers to participate. These events are very important for many food vulnerable people in Argentine. This is a drive-up service where pre-portioned food is placed in clients’ vehicles after it has been sorted into individual portions for each family.
YOUTHFRONT AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
Volunteers are needed to help with Youthfront’s After-School Club for elementary and middle school students in Argentine, KCK. This program is currently seeking high school and adult volunteers to help with school work, reading, enrichment activities, care of social/ emotional needs, and lots of fun! The After-School Club is a place to belong and to grow. The official program began on September 6th, but we are continually looking for volunteers.
For questions regarding local justice initiatives, contact Emily Rietema.
