1. Youth mentorship and discipleship programs
During the school holidays, CBCK hosts 400 children, young men and women at the camp facility for one week for mentorship and discipleship camps. The camp is a place where the children can explore and experience their childhood in a safe environment. The activities include:-
- Bible study.
- Discipleship and mentorship.
- Career guidance.
- Sports clinic.
- Feeding program.
- Fun! Fun! Fun!
2. Women and Girls support program
CBCK has began to produce re-usable sanitary pads for young girls living in the slums who cannot afford the cost of buying one. Many girls suffer shame during their menstrual period and some cannot go to school during that time of the month. CBCK has identified these vulnerable girls and has distributed over 1000 Kits since 2017 in the slums of Kibra ,Mathare and Kisumu
3. Education support programs
CBCK has adopted St. John community school to provide meals to all the 400 children and 13 teachers in the school calendar. Many pupils and students only have a meal a day and have to walk quite a distance to get to school thus, affecting their concentration and learning in school. CBCK ensures that they have at least a meal a day in their school during lunch break

5. Local churches
CBCK has developed a partnership model for supporting the local churches in the slums with its resources. The local churches receive the following support from CBCK in their missionary work of spreading the Gospel in the slums.
- A meeting venue at the resource center.
- A van for transporting volunteers and church workers.
- A key board.
- A sound system with microphones and any other support as requested.
6. Music and Dance Academy
The music and dance academy currently has children, young men and women who are being nurtured into professional dancers and singers. This program keeps them engaged to stay away from crime and other challenges affecting the youth in the slum. We believe in the long run this will be a source of revenue for them.
Leadership and life skills training is offered at the center to various community members and leaders to increase their capacity of awareness on issues affecting them and to impact them with skills and knowledge to address them. This is done within the center and through our community outreach programs.
8. Baking Project
Every week 100 loaves of bread and other pastries are being baked at the community center to feed the children, young men and women who come to the community center every day to be a part of the different programs being offered.
Since its inception in December 2010, the camp has reached over 7,000 children, young men and women in Kenya and other neighboring East Africa countries.
