Society today faces many challenges; escalating drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, strained relationships, human trafficking, suicide and sexual gender based violence to mention a few.

 

These challenges affect mental health and reduce personal potential and happiness.  Our passion is to help children and young people – vulnerable groups (VGs) – affected by alcohol and drug addiction, children that have been rescued from human traffickers, and their caregivers to acquire wholeness. We aspire to work with VGs to help attain their potential by living a drug and alcohol free life, improving their academic excellence as well as protecting the rights and interests of children.

Addiction Intervention

Psychoactive substances contain compounds that alter consciousness and affect mood. All psychoactive drugs act on more than one place in the brain, so we might expect them to produce complex psychological effects. Also, virtually every drug that acts in the brain also has effects on the rest of the body, influencing blood pressure, intestinal activity or other functions.

Counselling

Life is about change and we are all undergoing a change at all times. The author of The Power of Maturity – Louis Binstok explains that we are more of “Human in Becoming” than human beings. An important goal of every human being is to grow up both physiologically, psychologically, spiritually and socially- become mature.

Teen Rescue Program

Kenya is among selected countries in the world that have recorded high numbers of teenage mothers, says a new report. According to the study, ‘Out of wedlock, into school:combating child marriage through education‘, nearly three in every ten girls are bearing a child, disorganising their school lives.

Capacity Building & Life-Skills

These programmes help develop leadership and provide training for active participation. Through these programmes, domestic workers are also made aware of their rights and the facilities that are available for them. Lifeskills enhance adaptive and positive behaviors enabling individuals to effectively deal with challenges of everyday life.
