Kwetu Home of Peace is a rehabilitation Centre for street boys between ages 8-14 years, established in 1993 in response to increasing number of children on the streets of Nairobi, Kwetu’s goal is to “ensure that street children are rehabilitated and developed to their full potential to become productive members of society”.
It strives to achieve this vision – To Love Is To Share by reaching out to street children in Nairobi to give them love, hope and dignity to maximally develop their potentials.
