Welcome to Glads House

Thousands of young people live on the streets of Mombasa, Kenya. For these children life has always been a struggle for survival, often leading to the misuse of alcohol, drugs and a life of crime. Our purpose is to help as many ‘street children & youths’ as possible so that they can lead a ‘normal life’ and realise their potential. We achieve this in following ways:

  • We try to reunite children with their families using our team of social workers. Alternatively, we place the children with foster families.
  • We place the children in full-time education. We also support higher education for them.
  • We use our sports programmes to engage with the children & youths and provide practical and emotional support.
  • Our enterprise schemes provide training and apprenticeships for young adults.
