    We are a community based organization in Ruai Kenya, that aims to empower and support special needs
    individuals and their primary caregivers. We try to reintegrate them into the community as independent and productive citizens.

    In our organization we deal with children with mental disability such as , cerebral palsy, autism, epilepsy, down syndrome just to name a few.

    In Kenya Cerebral palsy is known as the silent disability in Kenyan homes, as most parents encounter stigmatization and the conditions are linked to factors like witchcraft and family inherited curses and therefore majority of parents
    tend to hide their children from the society..

    We offer a safe space where they can freely and talk about challenges they face from having children with disabilities

    Developing initiatives such as education support, agriculture, micro-finance, health care, sports and adding value to existing efforts designed to strengthen community

    Offer mentorships sessions and life skills they require to empower themselves .

    Make home visits and help them with household chores and give them few basic items they need as of people in the area are small scale farmers(home use) ,we therefore try give them new ideas on farming there to increase yields

  • Arbeit


    We operate in Ruai Kenya and most of the people here are living in poverty ,illiteracy and unemployment so it becomes very difficult for people with mental health to get help.

    We are requesting volunteers long term and short who have skills in farming, animal care, water conservation/irrigation methods, Medical experts/pediatric doctors, website making, business administration, psychology knowledge or mental health experts, any health professional, photographer, a good proposal writer or someone who has experience with associations. We would also like volunteers who are interested in community work.
