Equipping children to overcome adversity through education and psychosocial support.

To see children thrive and become courageous, compassionate, and resilient leaders.

Our story

In 2012, Colleen Costigan first visited the rural Kenyan slums of Uasin Gishu County. What began as a public health survey exposed her to the vast number of vulnerable children who were left with little to no resources to help them break out of the cycle of poverty. A seed was planted in her heart to move to Kenya permanently to pursue not only the practical ways to assist these children, but what it looks like to show God’s love in action. Since 2012, BEAM Kenya slowly grew to support over 80 children through comprehensive scholarships, psychosocial education, and more.

As we continue to grow, we have learned the importance of national and international partnerships to help make our programs thrive. Join us as we make significant progress towards breaking the cycle of poverty—one child at a time.
