Since our mission is to reach out with compassion to the marginalized, the Little Sisters of St. Francis East of the Rift Valley Region are involved in Health ministry, Education at different levels, Social ministry, Hospitality and Administration.

Apart from being involved with running the Institutions for the Institute, the Little Sisters in East of the Rift Valley are also involved with Diocesan Institutions and those of the government.  Currently the Sisters are focusing their attention of raising funds to construct a Home for the elderly Sisters.  We strongly believe that after active service of many years in the Institute, the Sisters deserve a descent place for rest and care.   They are therefore calling upon wellwishers to donate generously for construction of Lady Jacoba, a home that is on the Nakuru – Nairobi high way about 5 kilometers from Nakuru town.  Donations can be channeled through the Regional Office, P.O. Box 62676, Nairobi – Kenya.
