Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Maternal Healthcare

Mercy House provides prenatal, postnatal and assistance for deliveries (natural and emergency c-sections) for our teen pregnant residents. It also provides for the health of our babies from birth to age 3.

Population(s) Served

Our girls our homeschooled in our the first phase of our program. Once they enter phase 2, after their first year in our homes, they focus on their academic profile. It's our goal to help each girl develop her full potential. Each girl is enrolled in private school (the predominate education model in Kenya) or vocational school

Population(s) Served

Once our girls complete Form 1, they can continue their academic education (high school) or choose a vocational tract. Some of our girls are so far behind or prefer vocation to academic and this is a great option for them to develop skills for a successful livelihood.

Population(s) Served

Fair Trade Friday exists as an avenue for women to empower women. We are tackling poverty through dignified job opportunities in Jesus’ name. Fair Trade Friday is a monthly subscription club with curated, ethically produced items from around the world. 100% of the proceeds from Fair Trade Friday support the artisans, their families, and our maternity homes – thousands of women, men, and children around the world.

Engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty.

Empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable Fair Trade product development.

Offer hope in Jesus' name.

Our flagship ministry is supporting an indigenous residential ministry in Kenya that takes in vulnerable teenage pregnant girls, most of whom have suffered oppression and sexual violence. They are offered a safe place to receive prenatal and medical care, counseling, education, life skills, and sustainable job skills in Jesus' name with the goal of reintegrating mother and child back home or into a safe supportive environment. You can learn more at mercyhouseglobal.org

Our global ministry is our Fair Trade Friday subscription clubs. Mercy House Global buys products made by artisans in over 37 countries around the world. We ship the product to your front door every month. Your purchase facilitates the economic empowerment of women. This empowerment opens a door for education and training. This results in families and nations being transformed. Find out more at fairtradefriday.club

Mercy House Global funds an indigenous staff in Kenya to address the problems of Kenya. With an executive staff that is college educated, they are expertly equipped as educators and social workers to work in the field of maternal health with young girls.

With a social media presence of over 200,000 followers through combined channels, Mercy House Global is uniquely equipped to expose people to the need to shop ethically. MHG maintains two online store, two brick and mortar retail stores as well as four subscription clubs. Through these channels we are able to partner with over 110 different artisan groups in 37 countries around the world and sell their products to provide dignified jobs and empowerment. In 2018, MHG sold over $2 million dollars in artisan made product.

Since 2010, Mercy House Global has rescued 55 girls and delivered 50 healthy babies. These girls have been successfully reintegrated into their communities to live healthy productive lives. Each girl is followed up with and enrolled in a custom development plan.

In 2014 MHG started our first artisan based subscription club with 100 members. Today Mercy House runs 3 monthly clubs and one quarterly club with over 3,000 members. This accounts for over $1,000,000 in product sales each year with another $1,000,000 added through online and retail sales.
