Challenge

Urban unaccompanied adolescent girls ages 13 to 19 in forced displacement are considered the most vulnerable in population in Nairobi. A desperate need exists to provide them with effective tools that protect them from rape, forced marriage, prostitution, discrimination, at-risk pregnancies, slavery and HIV/AIDS. Heshima's Safe House is the first and only shelter in Nairobi designed to specifically meet their critical protection needs.

Solution

Residents live securely in a gender-sensitive, child-friendly, and security-focused environment while practicing good hygiene, enjoying safe drinking water and 3 nutritious meals daily, and accessing holistic case management and education programs

Long-Term Impact

Residents have access to Heshima's other programs that enable girls to transition to self-sufficiency and reintegrate into the Nairobi community with a renewed sense of stability and confidence.
