GTWO President, Karen Smith, took her first trip to Kenya, Africa in 2005. After two trips that year, she began Get the Word Out, Inc. in 2006. The foundation is that God's Word (the Bible) changes lives. GTWO's primary goal of distributing Bibles to the peoples of northwestern Kenya soon became much larger; they encountered children orphaned by war and AIDS, and this began our work of caring for and feeding those orphans.

Through God's provision and charitable donations of others wanting to get involved, GTWO used garage sales and word-of-mouth to raise money for many projects in Kenya. This too became bigger than anyone anticipated and the Get the WORD Out  Retail/ Resale Shop was born!

Today, proceeds from the store are used to continue caring for orphans in Kenya touched by GTWO. Along with the generous donations of sponsors and customers, GTWO administers water filters, art camps, an orphanage, and distributes Bibles across the remote areas of northwestern Kenya.
