Heshima Kenya

Heshima Kenya is a 501(c)(3) US nonprofit and registered Kenyan charity based in Nairobi, Kenya. Heshima is the Swahili word for "respect" and we specialize in identifying and protecting separated and orphaned refugee children and youth living in Nairobi. Our innovative shelter, education and community outreach services enable and empower unaccompanied refugee children, especially adolescent girls, to live healthy lives.
The Safe House: An Enclave of Peace and Hope
 
Heshima Kenya's Safe House offers a community for refugee youth and children to restore their physical and mental health and enhance their personal safety. Here, female refugees have the chance to heal and become strong so they may become agents for social change. project reportread updates from the field
Education and Empowerment for Refugee Girls
 
The Girls' Empowerment Project is an oasis of peace and hope where adolescent refugee girls, who arrive in Nairobi without their families, regain their health, join a community of support, and gain life-long tools leading them to self-sufficiency. The female refugees we serve become agents for hope and change. project reportread updates from the field
