Transforming Lives: Kwetu Home of Peace’s Rescue Mission for Street Kids in Nairobi
We’re overjoyed to announce our recent achievement at Kwetu Home of Peace: the successful rescue of 32 boys from the streets of Nairobi. Our mission is to transform lives by providing these street kids with a nurturing environment where they can thrive away from the dangers of street life. Our comprehensive rehabilitation program not only heals and supports these boys but also prioritizes their access to education, love, and shelter.
At Kwetu Home of Peace, our mission is to provide every child with the love and care they deserve. We strive to place them in safe, nurturing families through kinship, family reunification, and community-based care. We acknowledge the unfortunate reality that not all children have access to such an environment, often finding themselves alone and vulnerable on the streets of Nairobi.
Our dedication to transforming lives is reflected in our efforts to rescue these children and provide them with the essential support they need to grow and thrive. Our comprehensive rehabilitation program provides vital resources such as food, shelter, clothing, and psychosocial support, addressing the traumas they have experienced.
Feeding and Providing Nutritious Food and Clean Water
Food is a basic human need, and we understand that children need proper nutrition to grow and develop. We provide nutritious meals and clean water to our children to ensure that they are healthy and well-nourished.
Clothing the Children
Clothing is another basic human need that we provide to our children. We understand that proper clothing is essential for their health, comfort, and self-esteem. We provide our children with clean and appropriate clothing to help them feel good about themselves.
Reuniting Children with Their Families and Communities
We work tirelessly to reunite children with their families and communities. We believe that this approach is the best way to ensure the sustainability of family-based care. We locate families, parents, and kin for children and build awareness in the community about child protection, alternative care, and create a legal framework around the care of children and their rights.
