Women’s Rescue Centre

Marafiki Community International supports an amazing Women’s Rescue Centre in Nairobi which is home to around 20-25 young women aged between 10 and 24 years.

These women are rescued by the center for a number of reasons - many have been victims of gender based violence, forced migration, human trafficking, child labor and sexual abuse. Due to the nature of these reasons, it is not appropriate to have males working in the home so this program is only available to female volunteers.

The aim of the center is to rehabilitate the women it supports and prepare them for social reintegration. This is achieved by providing a safe, nurturing and happy environment for them to heal and by equipping them with the skills they need to support themselves in the future.

Our volunteers can be involved with:

- Teaching lessons at the center and helping girls with their homework

- Teaching life skills such as tailoring, hairdressing, gardening, cooking and cleaning

- Running 1:1 or group counselling sessions to help the women deal with their pasts (for those with training in social work or counselling)

- Setting up fun activities and ‘after school clubs’ for the girls to help them have an enjoyable experience

Volunteers on this program have the opportunity to help these young women reach their full potential and empower them to take control of their own futures. We know you will find this program hugely rewarding.

As with all our volunteer programs in Kenya, you will dedicate 1 day a week to one of our outreach programs. This means you will get to see some of our other projects such as the orphanage and HIV/AIDs program. This is the best way for us to make sure that our work is sustainable in the long-term.
