we believe transforming young people will transform a community

What's The Problem?

250,000 Street children In Kenya

No shelter. No education. No food. No money.
What Are They Worth?

Life on the streets holds dangers of disease, abuse of all kinds, police violence, exploitation, and general lack of basic needs. The youth then turn to huffing glue as a way to take the cold and hunger pains away. These valuable young people are seen as a threat to their community. Viewed as nothing more than thieves and drug addicts, their hearts are left alone.

What is fikisha doing about it?

WE FOCUS ON THREE KEY AREAS THAT PROVIDE A WELL-ROUNDED APPROACH TO STRENGTHENING THE COMMUNITY
Mentoring
Mentoring
Every kid needs people in their life to encourage, guide, and inspire them.
Fikisha’s staff and volunteers take time every week to mentor kids on the streets and kids in school.
Scholarships
Scholarships
Education is key to a growing individual and a healthy community.
FIKISHA provides scholarships to school for street youth and families in extreme need.
Community Development
Community Development
Healthy communities produce healthy people. Health people make healthy communities.
FIKISHA engages the community in weekly neighborhood walkthroughs, tutoring programs, and awareness activism.

Contrary to the movies these days, our world isn’t saved through superheroes. In real life, the great problems facing the world right now - poverty, human trafficking, high school dropout rates and the like - have to be solved without the likes of Thor, Tony Stark or the Incredible Hulk. They are solved by everyday people like you.
