Transforming street children in Nairobi, Kenya


Many children have no trustworthy adults in their lives. All children deserve an opportunities for their future like any other person. Save a Life is committed to transform the youth into responsible persons. Save a Life believes in the potential of all children, as well as ensuring that the rights of all children as described in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child ("UNCRC") should be guaranteed to them. We rescue street children and train skills to the youth in slums.

The problem is uncontrolled drug and substance abuse among the youth. Unwanted pregnancies. Hiv/ AIDs among the street families Lack of education and skills Increased crime rates


The project will see to it that there are no children in the streets and that they also have a place to call home. They can acquire the basic education, shelter, food and proper health care. This will also help in seeing that the crime rates are reduced.

Long-Term Impact

Having a literate generation where all chidren are able to acquire the basic need since they all have equal rights. They are human beings and all they need is love since they did not choose to be on the streets. Reduction in crime rates. Reduced or zero drug and substance abuse. Reduced sexually transmitted diseases and Hiv among the youth. Reduced unplanned pregnancies among the street families thus reducing the size of the street families.
