The streets


For a child

I Afrika provides a safe and loving home away from the streets

The streets and alleyways of Kenya's cities are no place for children, yet tens of thousands of boys and girls call these harsh, violent and hungry places their home. 

I Afrika was established more than a decade ago to offer street children an alternative - a place of support, safety and family. A place where kids can again be kids, and where education and grace open up brighter opportunities for the future. 


We believe God's love can be an anchor for children who are adrift - setting them free from addiction, the pain of a broken home and a path littered with destructive choices. Wherever and whenever we can, we reunite children with their families, supporting them to live at home and helping their caregivers to parent well.

Join with us to change the lives of children living on the streets - 'cos the streets are no place for a child!

I Afrika provides outreach, advocacy, education and holistic care for children left to fend for themselves on the harsh, unforgiving streets of Nairobi. To read how we do this, click here!

As a grassroots non-profit, we couldn't do this vital work without the support of our friends. Give your  donation here!

It takes a village to raise a child, and we have lots of them! To find out how you can volunteer your time - in Kenya or your home country - to make a real difference, click here.

The I Afrika Transition Home will be a loving gateway back to their families for 75 street kids every year. It'll take 950 building blocks to build a place where kids can get clean, get healing, and then get home. Will you help us?

$25 for one building block

$?? you choose how many blocks!

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.  Proverbs 31:8-9
