NO ONE SHOULD EVER BE MADE TO MAKE THE STREET THEIR HOME

We challenge every form of development whose result is human inequality and discrimination of any kind. We inculcate human development models that impeach systemic pathways reducing access to social-economic opportunities for vulnerable youth, children and women. We resist programming, financing, budgeting and practices that generally exacerbate the state of homelessness and motivate hopelessness in Kenya. We know how difficult it is for someone without a place they call home, and sometimes without identity. The intersection of violence meted upon those considered homeless, often referred to as street-connected communities is extremely horrendous. Such communities suffer from stigma, poor health and illiteracy; besides they are pushed into drug and substance abuse, crime and other socially unaccepted income resilience mechanisms such as commercial sex. Lying in bed, with an option of switching on and off some light, is traumatising, if at the back of one’s mind the thoughts linger of another resigned into uncomfortable cold pavements, under bridges, alleys and river banks besides the unspoken but accompanying insecurity. We are glad always when we get testimony that some of our target communities are now able to pay rent even if, such rent is paid for carton accommodation. It is one among the many steps towards emancipation from homelessness! Our streets cannot and should never be homes for our brothers and sisters.
