KABETE Rehabilitation Center Mentorship Program

June 21st, 2017

KABETE Rehabilitation Centre is a government-run institution for boys in Kenya who are in conflict with the law in one way or another. Many reasons have led to the boys serving their terms at this institution i.e. Doing drugs, petty theft, running away from home because of abusive parents, unjust systems and the major one being: Truancy. These boys are between the ages of 12-17 years. The school was established with the intention of addressing the root of the problem while giving the boys an education with the hope of keeping them off the street. The school experiences several challenges including inadequate resources (ie. books) and insufficient staff. The BSI Nairobi hopes to establish a mentorship program at this institution this year in the month of August. We believe that we can inspire these boys to remember that education is liberating and going to college is actually cool.

If you are interested in participating in this program or providing a donation please contact Esther Anyango at
