Kwetu Home of Peace is a Charitable Children's Institution established in 1993 to..
Kwetu's 3 R's
It involves regular visits to the streets to establish contacts with boys. Through this the social workers are able to identify boys who can join the centre. We also rescue boys who are lost and need assistance to trace their parents or guardians.
Children rescued in such situations usually stay in Kwetu for a short time. From the street they are taken to the drop in centre.It serves as a temporary stay, usually for a period of three to six months, for the boys who come from the streets.It has a capacity of 24 boys. The boys are later on moved to the main centre depending on their progress.
A boy is expected to stay in Kwetu Madaraka Drop-In Centre for a period of up to two years.
The rehabilitation programme focuses on character and talent development, spirtual norishment, hygiene and education.
The success of rehabilitation can be seen in the number of boys we reunite with their families.
Through rehabilitation the street boys are moved from a situation of high risk and "no tomorrow" to a situation of peace and security where there is "a tomorrow" In KHP Ruai.
Kwetu places an emphasis on the family as being the best place to care for children.
After a period of 2 years of rehabilitation, the children are Reintegrated to the families .i.e. Parents/Guardians
