We believe every girl deserves a chance to dream and reach her full potential. The UmmulKheir Girls’ Home embodies this belief, providing a safe haven and empowering education for girls who have faced multiple risks and challenges including retrogressive cultural practice, poverty, or are orphaned.
For over 29 years, UmmulKheir has been a sanctuary to many girls, we operate during school terms (January-November), offering a temporary home and holistic support while integrating girls back into their communities during holidays. This unique approach fosters a sense of belonging and community connection.
From pre-school to Class 8 (current junior school), our girls receive quality education within a nurturing environment. We also welcome children from the community, creating a diverse learning space. Recognizing the power of education, we offer scholarships to deserving girls, supporting their journey through high school and even university.
Beyond academics, UmmulKheir provides a comprehensive program that fosters;
- Social and emotional development: We offer counseling, life skills workshops, and recreational activities to build resilience and confidence.
- Cultural engagement: We celebrate traditions and encourage positive cultural practices.
- Community integration: We partner with local authorities, families, and community organizations to ensure a smooth transition back home during holidays and after completing their education.
As a leader in child protection, Womankind Kenya through UmmulKheir program reflects this commitment. We adhere to stringent policies and procedures to ensure the safety and well-being of every girl entrusted to our care.
