Making A Difference

Our story

Our work arose out of deep concern from the media reports 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.

We decided to come together to support these vulnerable women in their return journeys to Kenya through cash assistance and counselling.

Over time our work has evolved to include all Kenyan Migrant workers who continue to face exploitation and abuse in Middle Eastern countries.


Our vision

Kenyan Migrant workers living and working in dignity free from all forms of exploitation, discrimination and disadvantage


Our mission

We are now working to provide Kenyan Migrant workers with cash assistance, livelihood and psychosocial support to enable them to rebuild their lives after deeply traumatic experiences.

Our Strategy


Our strategy sets out three key programmes with the objective of delivering our mission to ensure vulnerable Kenyan Migrant workers are supported holistically.
