The Life-Changing Impact of Kwetu Home of Peace on Street Boys in Kenya

Share this

Transforming the lives of street boys in Nairobi is a major commitment for us at KHP. Our program is designed to rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate boys from the streets back to their families. With three intakes per year, we rescue 20-25 boys each time, and they are given the opportunity to live in our main center in Ruai.

Our Main Center
Our main center in Ruai is the heart of our program. With a capacity of 120 boys, we have everything we need to provide the best possible care for the boys we serve. After a three-month drop-in phase in Madaraka, the boys are transferred to the main house in Ruai where they continue with rehabilitation, receive spiritual formation, and have a chance to go back to school. The whole process at our Ruai Home takes about two years, after which the boys are reintegrated back into their families.

Our Commitment
At KHP, our primary commitment is to give these boys love, dignity, and hope to reclaim and restore their well-being to rediscover their talent and potential for a productive future. We cater to the children’s upkeep, training fees, medication, clothing, housing, psychosocial support, and more. We believe that children have great potential to change their own circumstances and become productive and successful members of society.

Our Impact
Our program has made a significant impact on the lives of the boys we serve, and we continue to strive to make an even greater impact. We are motivated by the transformation seen in the boys who have passed through our care. Through the support of our well-wishers, we exist today to serve children from the streets.

Our Vision and Mission
Our vision is to transform street boys into productive members of society by developing their full potential. We believe that every child deserves a chance to live a life of dignity, free from the harsh realities of life on the streets. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate boys from the streets of Nairobi back to their families. We aim to safeguard the lives of children and restore their dignity, especially children with disabilities. We do this by reuniting children with biological parents when possible, placing children with next of kin, and recruiting and preparing foster parents or community-based caretakers.

Our Approach
Our approach is based on a deep understanding of the challenges faced by street children. We work with each child on an individual basis to develop a personalized plan that addresses their unique needs. Our approach includes a range of activities, including counseling, education, and vocational training. We also provide medical care and psychosocial support to help the boys overcome the trauma they have experienced.

Our Team
At KHP, we have a dedicated team of professionals who are committed to transforming the lives of street boys in Nairobi. Our team includes social workers, psychologists, teachers, and volunteers, all of whom work together to provide the best possible care to the boys we serve.

Join Us
We believe that everyone can make a difference in the lives of street children in Nairobi. If you would like to get involved in our program, there are many ways to do so. You can donate, volunteer, or spread the word about our work. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.
