Harambee Ministries

Provide performing arts enrichment courses for at-risk youth

For over 37 years, Harambee Ministries has served a 12-block target area in Northwest Pasadena, CA. Centered at Howard St. and Navarro Ave., the location was once called “blood corner,” but with decades of love, dedication and service, they have improved conditions for kids, students, families and the community. “Harambee” means “let’s get together and push” in Swahili. Harambee Ministries nurture and equip leadership that will holistically minister to the community by sharing Biblical truths, in order to achieve the rebuilding of urban neighborhoods through relocation, reconciliation and redistribution. Dedicated volunteers and teachers educate, empower, disciple and grow Christian leaders who will uplift and effect positive, sustainable change in their families, our community and beyond.

This is how you can pray for us:

  1. Students as they are finishing up the school year
  2. Summer Programming, as we teach leadership and performing arts skills to children
  3. For children to find a sense of community in our program, even when we have to be virtual
  4. Financial Resources for our programs
