Empowers children to break away from poverty and life on the streets

Undugu Society of Kenya (USK) is an independent national non-profit NGO based in Nairobi, Kenya.

USK works to improve the care of children and youth living and working on the streets in Nairobi and beyond.

Over the years USK has shifted its focus from being a direct service provider to the integration of service delivery at both national and international levels

 

Approach

With their unique approach and dynamic programmes, USK have been able to expand its reach beyond Nairobi and advocate for positive change at national level.

USK works in both curative and preventive ways with the aim to provide rehabilitation and reintegration/integration for children into families and communities. The organisation provides peer-to-peer support for each case.

USK also runs a temporary place of shelter to receive those rescued from the streets and protect them while their families are located and prepared to receive them back.

Family is the bedrock on which society is built... What a joy it would be if all the suffering and deprivation that children and youth the world over experience, were completely eradicated!
