Faraja Foundation’s focus in this period is on women, men, youth and children in conflict and in contact with the law. Our interventions will be anchored in three pillars: Capacity development Projects, Community Adaptation Projects and Human Rights and Advocacy Projects.
Faraja supports successful rehabilitation of women, men, youth and children in conflict with the law; serving custodial or non-custodial sentences. Our goal is to contribute towards the realization of behavior change and reform among these target group.
Faraja focuses on effective reintegration/ re-entry of offenders back into the society to prevent incompatibility which may lead to unwarranted loss of life and recidivism.
Faraja has consistently worked with Kenya Prisons Staff and Offenders to ensure that offenders do not become victims of human rights violations and that the duty bearers are equipped to address rehabilitation in adherence to human rights best practices.
Faraja has focused on reducing human suffering among deserving offenders’ families and the less fortunate in the society. We cushion the families of the offenders and the less fortunate against adverse effects of the criminal justice process.

WELCOME TO FARAJA FOUNDATION
WHO WE ARE
Faraja Foundation is a Not-for-Profit organization located in South B, 10km to the South-Eastern side of Nairobi CBD.
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.
A Peaceful, Safe and Dignified Society.
Rehabilitate and Reintegrate offenders and children in conflict with the law in a rights-based approach through capacity development, advocacy, and community adaptation interventions.
