The initiation to help the disadvantaged community in Mowlem which is East of Nairobi came about when the families were displaced and livelihood was hard leaving the children on the streets.

Alice struggle for a just nation had to put up the programs to help both the displaced children, poor communities, adolescent mothers and vulnerable women


The program started in 2008 after the post-election violence of 2007 in Kenya that left many families displaced. A child who is satisfied after a meal has energy to read and play. It was meant first to feed the displaced children but later transformed to making children access and achieve free learning as a right. Somesha targets children who are unable to get access to any learning  in pre-primary ,primary and high learning and gives them chance to fulfil their dreams.







99% of parents are unable to participate in the cost-sharing policy of any school such as uniforms and shoes . If asked what would happen if they did not receive any direct support from Safisha they said:

My child would not have gone to any school.

Jane said: Iwould not have been able to buy uniform for my child.

Several parents expressed that in many schools, lunch has to be paid for, and they could not manage to feed their children with meals at school.

Overall, Safisha Africa has a 100%, parents satisfaction rate on children education by providing the following;-

  • Advocacy on every needy child to  be in school
  • Uniformity  that instills  confidence in a child to be same with the other child through  wearing school uniform .
  • Every day meal for the children
  • Writting materials
  • Text books to help the children in class work
