  UNT Village began with weekly meetings with children identified to have substantial need. Each week, the children are fed, tutored in academic subjects and have a Bible lesson. Local Kenyans and overseas friends help pay the salary of three certified teachers, auxiliary staff, food and teaching supplies as well as provide for school tuition and health needs. In the future, it is hoped to start a community school that will partly be funded by student tuitions while at the same time offering scholarships to needy students. Currently UNT is constructing a building to serve as school, library and transit housing. More funding is needed to finish the building and furnish it.
