WHO WE ARE

The Foundation (Faraja) is a Not-for-Profit organization located in South B, 10km to the South-Eastern side of Nairobi CBD.

Our History

The Foundation (formerly Faraja Trust) was founded in 1999 by a Swiss Benedictine Priest called Fr. Peter Meienberg for the benefit of the vulnerable members of the society among them women, refugees, and children. Over time, he realized how wanting the living conditions were in prisons when he had to bail out refugees in Nairobi’s women and male prisons and as a result, prisons became the core focus for Faraja.

Our Vision

A Peaceful, Safe and Dignified Society.

Our Mission

Rehabilitate and Reintegrate offenders and children in conflict with the law in a rights-based approach through capacity development, advocacy, and community adaptation interventions.

Our Rallying Call
