Children from the street in Nairobi
The IAfrika Centre consists of residential groups for rehabilitation, a school and, in the future, a transition house. The aim of IAfrika is to provide the children with particularly close support in all areas of their lives.
The children can find a permanent home in the IAfrika children's home. In return, they have to abide by the rules and stay clean. Over the years, it has become clear that it is not ideal for rehabilitation and the children's home to be in the same place. The children who come fresh from the streets are in most cases addicted to drugs (especially glue, etc.) and suffer from multiple traumas. This upsets the everyday life of the already rehabilitated children. For this reason, IAfrika is currently building a so-called Transition House at another quiet location, which will be used as a Rehabilitation Centre in the future. The aim is for the children to move from the Transition House to the children's home when they have been rehabilitated and there is a free place there, for example because children return to their original family or manage to move out on their own.
