Our journey began in May 2008 where  our first conference was held in May 2008 at Multimedia University which was then KCCT. The attendance was 400 students from different universties within Nairobi..

We invite local and international trainers with an aim of reaching out further in every region in Africa and the world in the future.

Since then we have developed different discipleship and leadership programs to equip the youth within colleges and universities.

Our programs are based on:

Annual conferences, DNAs, Timothy clubs, Outreach and missions, Scholarships, partnerships and networking.


Manasseh Ng'ang'a

“My name is Manasseh Ng'ang'a, a final year Bachelor of Commerce at UON This far i can only attribute it to God and the help accorded to me by SAM Africa ministry. I sat for my KCSE in 2025 but was never placed by the government & thi led e to staying home for 1 year .

A friend introduced me to SAM programs where i enrolled for a discipleship training where my life was truly changed and impacted.

By the grace of God i was honored to benefit from the scholarship. One of the unique things about this program, is the committment to walk with others on holistic growth.  After attending DNA and joining Timothy Clubs, my leadership skills were to a very large extent sharpened. I was able to read the bible from Genesis to Revelation, for the first time in my life.

I'm grateful for the love that SAM Africa fraternity has always shown and asking nothing in return other than the better me. 

“Pushing me to grow my relationship with God ,my leadership skills through training & even providing a platform where i can exercise them, i'm indebted. The scholarship has allowed me complete my studies without worries.My heart has been molded  to kindness and generosity. I will forever be indebted to this love that has not only transformed me but also future generations that will pass through my hand. 

FURAHA MARIE

My father is Congolese and my mother is Burundian. I was raised in Kenya. I am a last born of three. A gospel musician, a worshiper and a song writer.

In 2016 I was looking for a good band that will help me grow spiritually and musically. That’s when a friend told me about SAM Africa.

I joined SAM Africa in 2017 when I was in college and since them my life has never been the same again. SAM Africa has really changed my life. The morning devotions, sharing of the word and practice that we have, the ministries that we go to everyone of them have left a mark in my life. On top of that I found a family that cares and loves me just as I am.

DERRICK MURUNGA (Scholarship 2011 - 2013) Drama and film teacher: International school 

Nine years ago, I walked in the corridors of the University of Nairobi, College of education paranoid and hopeless. I was in my second year with no books, food, and shelter. My main thirst was to get an education, get a good job, and use it as an escape route from poverty. From time to time, I had to beg different people a place to sleep in order to attend classes the next day, if I was lucky enough, some would offer me food. I struggled throughout my first year, sneaking into the exam room to sit for my examination since my arrears had accrued to USD. 2,000. Although I am a born again Christian, life was tough making me think of other options like quitting school or even taking away my own life. One evening while in school I saw a poster of SAM Africa on the notice board. I took a step and applied for the scholarship and was lucky enough to get it. My school fee was paid and I finally was able to eat in the university Mess. I am forever grateful for the timely financial support from SAM Africa.
