Challenge

Mombasa is a tourist city because of its beautiful white beaches. However, it is also home to about 200,000 street children. The city is a hub for child trafficking and is a transit, destination and origin of trafficked children who are lured to the streets due to poverty and lack of access to education and a safe environment.

Solution

We rescue children from the streets and provide them with a safe and secure environment where their rights as children are protected and they can grow in safety and in dignity. We feed, educate and teach life skills to these children as well as facilitate their integration into the community. We work with relevant government ministries to lobby for the implementation of child protection measures and bring to book perpetrators of child abuses.

Long-Term Impact

We will provide shelter and educate 114 children rescued and rehabilitated from the streets they will learn alongside other children from the community around the Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. The children have dreams and work hard to make those dreams come true. Some want to be pilots, others teachers or doctors, etc. We nurture their dreams by providing shelter and access to education to the children. Education will help the children attain their life goals and support their families.
