We create opportunities in Nairobi’s slums!

Noracta does development programs on the premises of the poor in the slums according to a model Hans Nielsen Hauge used 200 years ago in Norway. We take their own worldview seriously and therefore we combine education with spiritual and social support, economic assistance and capacity building. We give poor people in the slums opportunities to start their own businesses, schools etc. Small congregations develop to be both spiritual and practical fellowships of friends and hotbeds for economic development. The model which worked well for Hauge, seems to work also in Nairobi’s slums today, 200 years later.

The dream is to create a grassroots movement among the poor churches in East Africa where pastors and members are becoming free from poverty to a dignified life in family, church, and in economic activities.
