I have worked in Heshima Kenya for almost five years in the Girls Empowerment Program and I have seen and watched the lives of refugee girls, women and children change through a holistic program.
Under one roof they access Basic Education, Vocational training, Lifeskills and Income generation. Those who have children have the advantage of a child care unit which allows them to learn and at the same time visit their children for feeding and play. They are offered balanced tasty meals for breakfast and lunch. They are also given transport to and from their homes. Those with security issues are accomodated at a safe house.
All girls have access to psychosocial help.
The staff in Heshima Kenya are very caring and supportive and they treat the girls and children as their own family.
Whatsmore the girls have advantage of pursuing a Kenya national exams and certified for primary and secondary education. Heshima provides the girls a qualified and professional team of teachers who equip and empower the girls.
By supporting Heshima Kenya you are changing the lives of girls, women and children holistically. Help Heahima so that they can continue empowering girls and women.
Every girl, every woman and every child in Heshima Kenya is treated special as individuals. Child protection is at the core of all Heshima's work.
Bravo Heshima Kenya for your wonderful humanitarian work and keeping Refugees safe!
