Faraja Foundation through the initiative of Fr. Peter Meienberg established a daycare center at Lang'ata Women's Prison to benefit the women inmates who went to jail with their children
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.
Most of these boys have been in conflict with the law and have spent time in the youth prisons, probation centers, rehabilitation schools but are now reformed. Faraja Foundation leaves no one behind and we can help these young men achieve their dreams.
Offenders should not become victims of human rights violations. Duty bearers are equipped to address rehabilitation in adherence to human rights best practices.
Faraja Foundation runs community adaptation projects that aim to adequately prepare prisoners, youth and children in conflict with the law in the target institutions for community re-entry.
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.
