Establishing Christ-centered churches in Kenya and Tanzania
AIM’s Eastern Region is composed of Kenya and Tanzania. AIM began its work here over 100 years ago, and to this day, maintains a strong base of operations in these two neighboring countries. The region has a combined population of just over 80 million people, peppered from the tropical coast, to temperate highlands, and (more sparingly) into the scorching desert— with ever-increasing numbers seeking opportunities in major city centers such as Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam.
We partner with Kenyans and Tanzanians to promote and facilitate outreach among the region’s unreached. Over the past century, AIM missionaries have developed strategic ministries in health care, theological education, and church planting. And while Kenya and Tanzania both have a well-established church today, over 50 people groups (representing seven million individuals) have yet to hear the Good News. Most reside in east and central Tanzania, as well as coastal and northern Kenya where Islam has a long history and a growing influence.
