ALL ABOUT HELPING OTHERS.
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.
The primary purpose for the Foundation has been to provide the support needed by vulnerable people to grow, expand, and realize their full potential and capabilities through spiritual and emotional care, emergency humanitarian aid, skills training, small business start-up support, counseling, vocational training, and provision of scholarship opportunities.
Rehabilitate and Reintegrate offenders and children in conflict with the law in a rights-based approach through capacity development, advocacy, and community adaptation interventions.
A Peaceful, Safe and Dignified Society.

NOTABLE MENTIONS FROM OUR
STRATEGIC LAUNCH 2018
I wish Faraja that we go from strength to strength and give hope to those who have been forgotten by society and at the same time give glory to God. Amen
We may think prison is a different world from Kenya. The persons inside, offenders are Kenyans like us.
We have a new mission; which is a peaceful, safe and dignified society.
There is a lot needed to be done and we need all the support to enable them live a meaningful life as they leave prison.
Faraja has given us a means to improve our skills and enhance our stay in a holistic way.
We work with several partners and stakeholders.
