Currently, we working with women and girls in Mororto a slam at the coastal town of Mombasa. Mission: To transform and build resilience amongst youth and women in Kenya.

Presence in: Kenya

Change focused organization is a National non -governmental organization which was born to address issues of deep-rooted retrogressive cultural practices, poor quality of life, and low developmental opportunities amongst women, youth, and children. As the name suggests the organization seeks to create a positive impact and sustainable social change in the Coastal Counties.

The organization came into being as a result of realizing predominant inhibiting factors including the retrogressive cultural practices such as patriarchy, social injustices, and unequal resource distribution for a very long time. These are some of the practices which are deeply engrained amongst the Coastal communities and have therefore led to the low quality of health choices & environment, poor quality of educational outcomes as well as infringement on women’s rights.

Our main beneficiaries and target group include women, young girls of reproductive age, children, and youth.

Our work

We envision a society enjoying a sustainable decent life. We intend to realize its vision through strengthening the capacity and transformation of society in order to enjoy decent and dignified lives. Our overall goal is to promote and ensure positive transformation and change in socio-economic spheres.

Our commitment to realizing the mission is through the following:

  1. Promotion of effective transition and realization of potential among young girls and youth in schools.
  2. Championing of women developmental rights and youth economic empowerment opportunities
  3. Ensuring an improved level of health and nutrition amongst women and children
  4. To uphold environmental conservation and initiatives in society
  5. Relieving immediate suffering of the less disadvantaged through mobilization and distribution of in-kind resources.

We are guarded by the following organizational values:

  • Sacrifice
  • Community centered
  • Integrity
  • Respect for others
  • Transparency
  • Selflessness.
