Outreach and Community Service

At Trinity, all of our community outreach programs fall under the banner of Harambee.

Harambee is a Swahili word which loosely translates as ‘all together we make a difference’ and has been adopted across Eastern Africa to mean any activity where the community comes together to help itself.

No person achieves anything in life without the help and support of those around him, and at the heart of Harambee’s vision is the idea that the entire Trinity Community will pull together and stand in solidarity with those on the margins.

It is a student-led program that provides a long-term framework for engaging and supporting communities in need. Harambee facilitates opportunities for Trinity students and their families to safely explore, engage and find their place in the world.
