Making A Difference

Our story

Our work arose out of deep concern about the reports on the media about Kenyan Migrant Domestic Workers in Lebanon, who had recently found themselves unemployed, homeless and stranded after the Beirut explosion on August 4th 2020 & COVID-19 pandemic.

With the help of wellwishers and other organisations, we are working to holistically support workers, both abroad and returnees, with financial, psychosocial and other forms of assistance.

Our values

We are collaborative

We are open to working together with others to

achieve our vision.

We are empathetic

We work in a manner that places dignity at the core

of all our work.

We are transparent

Our reporting practices ensure we track each donation and provide information on what you helped fund.
