Accommodations and Meals:
The average cost per person, per day is $90-$110. This breaks down to the following expenses:
Gracehouse Resort: $45 for double-occupancy room & breakfast. (**Please note that you will incur an additional charge of $20/ night for accommodation in a single-occupancy room.)
MOHI Guesthouse: $30 for room & breakfast
Lunch: $10 (at MOHI’s main center; includes water, tea, & snacks)
Dinner: $17 (at Gracehouse Resort or restaurant in Nairobi)
Transportation (Van): $18/ day (**Please note that on average, transportation costs will be $5 more per person, per day for groups of eight persons or less because the total cost is being divided among less people.)
It is not customary to tip for services in Kenya. However, many teams wish to thank those that have served them during their stay. An average tip for a driver is $25-$30 (~3,000 Kenya shillings). You may give it directly to the driver at the end of your time with them. For guesthouse or safari lodge staff, we recommend taking up an offering at the end of your trip and giving it to the receptionist for distribution.
As we work together to create an itinerary for your team prior to arrival, MOHI will provide you with an estimated ministry budget. However, as you plan your trip, here are the average costs for certain ministries: "Bring the Light” (installing windows in homes in Mathare while sharing the Gospel)-- $40 for installation in six homes; VBS—50 cents/child/day; and medical camps-- $3,000.
Transmitting Funds for In-Country Expenses:
We work with our partner, Christian Missionary Fellowship (CMF), to arrange for the transfer of funds from the U.S. to Kenya. For ease of administration, it is best if funds are transmitted to CMF at least a month before your arrival. Please call the CMF office at (317) 578-2700 to set up electronic payment of funds through ACH (Automated Clearing House). You will receive a separate email from CMF with instructions for sending the funds.
Alternatively, if you plan to send funds months in advance of your trip, you can mail a check to: CMF, P.O. Box 501020, Indianapolis, IN 46250. Please ensure that the "Memo” field of your check contains the following information: Church/ Team Name, City, State, and Trip Dates.
After you transmit funds via ACH or check, please email email@example.com to let us know the amount you sent and on what date.
