Kwetu Home of Peace: A Sanctuary of Transformation

In the heart of Nairobi, a beacon of hope shines for the city’s most vulnerable children. Kwetu Home of Peace, established in 1993 under the Archdiocese of Nairobi [LEARN MORE], stands as a testament to the power of compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Founded by Fr. Michael Meunier, a Missionary of Africa, this charitable institution began as a humble Care and Feeding Centre for street children. Today, it has blossomed into a comprehensive residential program dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and reintegrating street boys back into their families.

From Survival to Revival: The Kwetu Journey

The transformation from a feeding centre to a residential haven in 1995 marked a pivotal shift in Kwetu’s approach. With three intakes annually, the program welcomes 20-25 boys, offering them not just shelter but a nurturing environment that fosters growth and healing. The Main House in Ruai, accommodating up to 120 boys, serves as a sanctuary where they receive spiritual formation, education, and a chance to heal from the scars of street life.

Kwetu Home of Peace extends a lifeline to these boys, offering a second chance at life through a supportive environment enriched with education, healthcare, and love.

The Path Forward: Education, Healing, and Self-Sufficiency

Kwetu Home of Peace’s vision extends to the community, driven by the belief that children flourish best within families. Our goal is to transform more lives by reaching out to children in their homes, fostering a future where every child is nurtured from the roots of their family tree.
