Undugu Society of Kenya (USK) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that was established way back in 1973 by the late Father Arnold Grol, a Dutch priest. He founded the organization after he observed a growing disturbing phenomenon of children living and working in the streets of Nairobi and its environs. We are child and youth centered and have been implementing development interventions focusing on; Rescue, Rehabilitation and Re-integration (RRR) of children and youth living or working in the streets, their families, as well as socio-economic empowerment of poor urban and rural communities in Kenya. We run a children’s centre that provides shelter and care for vulnerable children before they are reintegrated with their families. To add value to the lives of our beneficiaries we engage in networking, lobbying and advocacy both at County and National level as a strategy to ensure the protection and care of the children and youth therein.
Our head office is in Westlands, Nairobi, with satellite offices in Dandora, Kisumu and Kajiado Counties.

We envision ”A society where all children, youth and families lead decent lives.
