Kwetu Home of Peace
Kwetu Home of Peace (KHP) was established in 1993 by FR MICHAEL MEUNIER, a missionary of Africa as a care and feeding centre for street boys. KHP has grown from being a feeding Centre to a rehabilitation center for street boys. From 1995 KHP became a residential Centre acting as a “halfway house” for street boys, it designed to rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate. Kwetu has three intakes per year. Each intake takes about 20/25 boys. The boys are later transferred to the main house in Ruai which is 15 kilometers away from Nairobi city. Ruai houses a capacity of 120 boys. Here they continue with rehabilitation, receive spiritual formation, and get a chance to go back to school. The whole process at Ruai takes about two years and after which the boys are reintegrated back to their families.
Our major commitment is to give these boys love, dignity, and hope in order to reclaim and restore their well-being so that they can rediscover their talent and potential for a productive future. Children have great potential to change their own circumstances and become productive and successful members in society, KHP beliefs. The Home has a total of 120 boys. The ages of the children range from 8 to 17 years older. The home caters for the upkeep of the children in training fees, medication, clothing, housing, and psychosocial support among others.
