We are one of the few safe Shelters available in Nairobi that caters for women who are survivors of GBV. We receive survivors together with their children, and take them through their journey of healing to a point where they can take care of themselves. Our shelter is a beacon of hope for many women and children who are survivors of various types of abuse and neglect.
The shelter was established in 2007 and has successfully provided sanctuary to over 3000 women and children.
At full capacity, we are able to host 100 women, girls & children at a time.
According to the United Nations Population Fund Report 2019, Kenya recorded 378, 397 adolescent and teenage pregnancies for girls aged 10-19 years between July 2016 and June 2017, specifically, 28, 932 girls aged 10-14 and 349,465 girls aged 15-19 became pregnant.
Teenage pregnancy has adverse effects on the population with girls more likely to face tough consequences.
One grave outcome of early pregnancies and marriage is reduced literacy levels in girls. To address this, the program seeks to enhance teenage girls’ literacy levels by addressing the teenage pregnancy menace.
The program has two main components which are mentorship and community outreach forums.
The forums are meant to enlighten the public on the need to ensure teenage girls complete their education and equally to identify and eliminate teenage pregnancy risk factors.
Activities undertaken include school counselling sessions, distribution of dignity kits and public sensitization campaigns.
Adopt a Family Initiative is a campaign that supports life as a gift that keeps on giving. The program is aimed at helping and sharing with vulnerable families that struggle to make ends
Under the Adopt a Family Initiative, we aim to:
- Help feed vulnerable families.
- Help raise fees for needy students going back to school.
- Help sustain and upscale income-generating activities for vulnerable households.
- Help educate and train vulnerable youth.
This is typically achieved by, first identifying families that need help and tapping into our networks to address their predicament.
Adopt a family brings together individuals and institutions willing to take impactful steps towards bettering the lives of others.
Activities that enable us to deliver on this
mandate include Monthly Food Drives, Corporate Partnerships, Individual Appeals as well as seeking bursaries and sponsorships for selected beneficiaries.
