Sponsor Handbook

Cherish Ministry -  Sponsor Handbook

Cherish is a ministry of the Kenya Team at University Place Presbyterian Church in University Place, WA.  We seek to serve  friends in Meru, Kenya, by partnering with Hope International Ministry Trust in Meru.  Our primary ministry is the sponsorship of needy children in the Meru area, many of whom are directly or indirectly affected by HIV and AIDS.

This handbook is primarily meant for new sponsors. We will eventually have it available in printed form too, but wanted to give everyone a first look at it via the web!

Our Mission Statement

In partnership with HOPE International Ministry Trust in Meru, the Cherish Ministry at UPPC  provides sustainable and timely support to educate, equip, and empower children living in the Meru region of Kenya.
