                   Pastor Makori loves the youth and has gone on mission trips into the remotest part of the country of Kenya. It is during these mission expeditions that he met with young Maasai girls who were being initiated into adulthood to be married off. The girls ranged from age 9-11. This touched him so much that he thought of a rescue plan for these girls. He used his family money and some help from some friends and took these girls to a boarding school. Two of the girls are in form three (third year in high school) and the other two are joining form one next year (year one in high school) school. With the help of Mr. Sam Vonumu, he has been able to put fifty needy children in school, some in elementary school and others in high school. He desires to expand this humanitarian work to over a thousand children. This is what he wants to do even in his retirement years. He is very passionate about this work.
