    we are aimed at creating safe spaces for all the underprivileged protects the lives of those the society considers cursed, yet are people born in a special way.The key population and the LBQ AGYW living with HIV.
    We operate within Kisii county but have most of members from all over the country. Sexual Reproductive health is our niche and we believe in Restoring Dignity and Touching Lives.

    I have a big dream. I'd like to establish a community(resource) centre in Kisii. In a way. I'd like to establish a space where adolescents girls and young women not forgetting the minority can meet and be inspired by one another. But it's not just that. It will also house a library, a wellness centre where people may practice yoga and meditate, as well as meetings, counselling sessions, podcasts, and book clubs. There would also be areas for people to unwind, a serene environment in which they could work on their project, and an open shed where open mics would take place.

    In other words, it is a place that aspires to mentor youth, impact their bodies to live healthier lifestyles, and inspire their souls via art.

    I've been thinking about it for a while. I'll need millions to completely achieve this idea of ours because we have a mental vision of how we want this place to look.But where will the millions come from to make this dream a reality? And the fact that we want it to be this great place that caters to the needs of the body, mind, and soul makes realizing this idea even more difficult.

    I'm quite aware that we should begin with something practical, such as discovering other dreamers and creatives, and work my way up from there. Artists, poets, open mic lovers, and people who care about wellbeing, mental health, and being a positive force in the world.

    I've been looking for a book club in Kisii but have yet to locate one. I've been looking for podcasters as well because I'm considering launching a mentor program and a place of refuge for young people to discuss personal issues and life in general.

    Without a doubt, it's a tremendous dream. But I'm determined to make it a reality. It's something we wish had been available to me before, something I could reach out to and participate in.

    All we want is to be a part of something, to be a part of a community. When we're young, we have a great desire to learn, be inspired, and heal, and I believe many people feel the same way I do. Life can be difficult and consuming, not to mention uninspiring, at times. I believe that establishing a space where people can be a part of something amazing, something that allows them to be expressive while being surrounded by like-minded others, may transform people's lives. You transform lives by empowering the mind, impacting the body, and inspiring the soul.

    We looking for persons who share our dreams. we can't do it by ourselves , let's face it. Being of service to the world can be difficult, if not downright discouraging, at times, especially when all you have is a dream and a desire to change people's lives.Thank God we are somewhere now and with time we will have a bigger one.

    Do you wish to join us in empowering Kisii's brains, bodies, and souls? Everybody is invited.

    Therefore, we continue welcoming partnership with the hope that our work would not be possible without joint relationships of individuals, organizations, churches, and businesses among others.

    the organization was founded by Laurah after she developed a thrill to help the underprivileged in the society. Being HR and PR by profession,she opted to go into humanitarian direction as Sexual Reproductive Health Ambassador due to her passion and what she went through while growing she is also a volunteer in other humanitarian organizations like.Laurah took the pivotal role in ensuring that discussions were held around how to acknowledge and help the underprivileged individuals in the community. But one finger can’t kill a bug . she shared her idea with people she thought would support it, to form an organization. We have since been registered as a CBO in Kisii County and we celebrate the activities already achieved within the county since inception.

    Sexual Reproductive health awareness is a wide topic that has not been embraced in the Kenyan communities. Week after week, month after month ,years after years social media is filled with early teenage pregnancies and abandonment of Autistic kids, and the People Living with Disabilities persons, branded ‘cursed’ or family members killing each other in mysterious circumstances. In some cases, the culprit ends up taking their own lives as well. Most of these cases, if not all, are instances of Stigmatization and rejection. To reduce the rate of mob-brutality and number of suicide cases witnessed within the county, that is how our organization was born.

    A few things to be aware of is ,I am a mom of a 10 year old girl and a 3 year old boy who are school going.We live in Nyanchwa estate in Kisii county which is a 5mins drive from the town center.We have beautiful hiking opportunities to the hills around like Ekerore and Manga hills etc.
