About Lifesong Kenya

Location:

Gikuyu Close, off Ngong Road, P.O. Box 1407, Nairobi, Nairobi 00200, KE

Mission Statement

We enable boys and exceptional young men to see a future full of possibilities and to develop positive masculinity that will let them thrive even in rough contexts.

Description

Lifesong Kenya works with young men whose self-esteem and confidence is completely shattered and needs rebuilding. Our first step is to help them replace old habits with new thoughts and ways of doing things.

As opposed to the punitive justice system, the approach adopted by Lifesong Kenya is reparative. Our action plan is divided into three moments through which we closely follow at-risk male teens and young men who committed minor offences, and we offer them an alternative: Prevention, Restorative Justice and Reintegration.

Over the past seven years, Lifesong Kenya has partnered with youth, parents, prison staff and primary schools. We’ve served over 1220 male youth and had close to 10 court cases withdrawn after our intervention.

Several youth have gone back to school and college to complete their education. We also served over 30 families during Covid-19 pandemic where we planned meals and bought food from local sellers in the community.

"When I was joining Lifesong Kenya's REAM Program, I didn’t know how to operate a computer or design business cards. I also did not know that my complainant would withdraw the charges against me and that I would be free to go home. Lastly, the program helped change my character and the way I look at friendship. Thank you Lifesong Kenya for changing my life and helping me to see my full potential!"
