The purpose of our ministry is to work with the poor and marginalized in Kenya. Go Near's goal is to empower the poor through skills training, education and community development.

James and Helen Davis
James has been a Law Professor at Handong International Law School (HILS) since 2006. He teaches US law in English to international students, many of whom desire to practice law in the areas of human rights and religious freedoms in places where the church is threatened. HILS is forthrightly Christian and teaches law from a Biblical Worldview. Many developing countries are discovering that their laws are inadequate to meet the needs of their people, but they lack the knowledge and insight to correct the problems. HILS seeks to equip students to address these kinds of needs.
