When & Where
Heshima Kenya is the first and only organization of its kind in Kenya serving the most vulnerable of the world’s refugees – unaccompanied and separated refugee women and girls. Many of the girls we serve have experienced the detrimental effects of war, the loss of their families, and, in many cases, kidnapping, rape, trafficking, unlawful detainment, and torture. At Heshima Kenya, we create and mobilize a social network that empowers girls and women to strive for economic self-sufficiency, allowing them to become leaders in their own right.
