365m - Kenya Rise

My name is David Gillett and am a student at Nazarene Theological Seminary pursuing my Masters of Divinity emphasizing in Intercultural Studies. I was presented with an amazing opportunity by my school through a program called 365m to travel to Kenya in 2014. While there I will intern at Strategic Applications International & Servant Forge, while furthering my studies.

This year-long global internship experience couples together graduate-level intercultural studies with hands-on experience in cross-cultural settings where "the world will be our classroom."

While in Kenya, I will be working on 5 main initiatives: Gender-Based Violence; Follow the Clean Trash Campaign; Clean Water Development; HIV/AIDS Health & Awareness; & Youth Empowerment & Employment. I will travel extensively throughout the country to meet and partner with key policymakers, businesses, educational institutions and communities to develop sustainable solutions to better serve their land.

Before I even get there however, I need to raise funds to cover tuition, living expenses, and travel costs. I am raising $25,000 for the duration of my trip to Kenya which will last ten months. I leave early February and return early December in 2014. This video and page explains the vision behind my trip and what I hope to accomplish and learn.

I will also be selling T-shirts! Be on the lookout!

So please partner with me as I embark on this life changing journey!

Thanks & God Bless - Mfalme David Christensen Gillett
