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 almost a decade ago to offer street boys 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. In 2018 we have also opened our doors to vulnerable girls at risk of abuse, offering a safe shelter and an opportunity for education. 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.

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!

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
