Glad’s House is UK registered charity and a Kenyan that delivers holistic support to the thousands of children and young people that live on the streets of Mombasa, Kenya.
Glad’s House works to deliver holistic support to the street children and young people living in Mombasa, Kenya
Glad’s House supports children and young people from the streets to living with family, a foster family or into independent living. An intensive ‘rehabilitation’ programme run by Care Workers and Social Workers, taking up to three months, helps withdrawal from substance use and to deal with traumas faced on the street. During this time the teaching staff assess each individual’s educational needs. This service is relatively new and is currently being developed further and will be greatly supported from the income generated from bikes sales.
Many of the young people Glad’s House supports are long-term street children and have been out of education for a considerable length of time. These young people are unable to return to formal education and as an alternative are encouraged to get involved in one of the enterprise schemes run by Glad’s House - a Cyber Café, Bike Shop, a Café and a Golf Caddie Programme. These businesses also help Glad’s House towards achieving their long term goal of self-sustainability.
Glad’s House also believes in Preventative work so we can reach children and young people before they end up on the streets. Glad’s House has a substantial Community Programme that supports children and young people through sport, education, counseling and community activities such as clean ups.
