On 18 August 2012, over 100,000 members of the Church in Africa participated in several service projects in their communities under the annual initiative, All Africa Mormon Helping Hands. This program began in South America in 1998 and was expanded to Africa in 2008. In Kenya, several projects ranging from environmental clean-up exercises to painting of buildings to helping in orphanages were done in major cities and towns in areas where the Church has some presence.
In Eldoret, 1000 trees were planted by around 400 members of the Church at the Moi Teaching Hospital grounds. This was made possible through partnership with Kenya Forest Services who provided the seedlings. Several hardware stores in the town including Eagles Hardware Store donated the digging implements and gloves for this project. Kenya Forest Services also provided 200 other seedlings to members of the Church in Riruta and Mountainview which were planted at two primary schools in Kangemi area.
In other parts of Nairobi, Church congregations worked at Langata and Kasarani Police Stations, Maringo and Ofafa Jericho Clinics in Makadara, South B Shopping Center and KMC Primary School in Athi River where there were clean-up exercises. Other projects in Kenya were also done in Kitale, Mombasa, Chyulu, Kisumu, Kilungu Hills and Naivasha.
