Another nation in East Africa, Kenya is also experiencing an explosive growth for the Capuchin community, which is a bit younger than the Tanzanian community. More than 100 young men are at various stages of training to become Capuchin priests and brothers. Kenyan Capuchins are eager to achieve self-reliance, as well. And the Seraphic Mass Association is assisting in a very significant way. The SMA helps with seminary expenses, providing a majority of the funds needed for formation. We have also provided funding for a brand new primary school in a rural area. St. Veronica Primary School has changed a very small village into a thriving town. Various other projects in Kenya have received help from the SMA. Kenyan Capuchins also send missionaries to Papua New Guinea. They do wonderful work and are a big help in the missions.
