Description

The Rafiki Way: an exploration through your favourite charity in Nakuru Kenya, Rafiki Mwema.


Rafiki Mwema means 'Loyal Friend' and that is what Rafiki is to these young boys and girls.


It all began in a simple rental house in Nakuru, Kenya. In 2011, we opened the doors of Rafiki Mwema to provide a place of refuge to young girls who were victims of sexual abuse. We provided a safe, loving and therapeutic home to them while their cases went through the courts. We called our home ‘Rafiki Mwema’, which translates to “loyal friend” in Swahili and within one week we were home to 22 little girls.


Today, having grown to five houses on a large, secure property, we are home to 70 children – girls and boys – who are therapeutically parented by our 45+ Kenyan staff.


Every child that is able to return home to their community is visited regularly by our outreach team, to ensure they are safe, cared for and attending school.


Our mission is to heal every child from their trauma with attachment, love and empathy. On the ground in Kenya, we work closely with families, schools, villages and government departments in an effort to break the cycle of abuse and bring about systemic cultural change to remove the stigma of sexual abuse that is sadly common in Kenya.


An incredible amount of work goes on behind the scenes at Rafiki Mwema to heal, protect and gain justice for our children. If you would like to contribute to genuine life transformation, please consider supporting us and the work we do at Rafiki Mwema, to give children the opportunity to live as children should.


In this podcast we will share everything you need to know about Rafiki Mwema: the backstory, how it all works, you'll meet the people behind the charity, the ambassadors, the various projects and programs you help to fund, and some stories from inside Rafiki Mwema,
