Kwetu Home of Peace is a rehabilitation Centre for street boys between ages 8-14 years. Established in 1993 in response to increasing number of children on the streets of Nairobi, Kwetu’s goal is to “ensure that street children are rehabilitated and developed to their full potential to become productive members of society”. It strives to achieve this vision by reaching out to street children in Nairobi to give them love, hope and dignity to maximally develop their potentials.
KHP has been serving humanity for the past 24 years with the motto of “To love is to Share” for the 24 years we have touched the lives of children, who had no hope, and have given them an opportunity to flourish. We rescue, rehabilitate reintegrate children who are mainly abandoned, abused, orphaned, desperate, and neglected. We provide them with food, shelter, clothing, education, medical care, Spiritual and most importantly the family spirit full of love. That is the reason this place is called KWETU HOME OF PEACE “KWETU” stands for a place someone can call a home and proudly identify with that place where people live together with love, peace and hope.
