MICF CORE ACTIVITIES

MICF for the longest time, has focused on Most at Risk Populations (MARPs) including people living with HIV and Aids, Commercial Sex Workers (CSW’s), people abusing alcohol and other drugs, and survivors of GBV.

The Foundation seeks to provide children and youth focused interventions in a continuum of care starting from Prevention (life skills training, parental training), Empowerment (functional child and youth rearing trainings, psycho-social-spiritual Care and mentorship), Transition (children transition houses) and Development (education, vocational training). To effectively deliver on its activities the foundation conducts research and training, offers Psychosocial Support Services and organizes for community outreach programs.

Article 53 (1) d, in the Constitution of Kenya states, “Every child has the right to be protected from abuse, neglect, harmful cultural practices, all forms of violence, inhuman treatment and punishment and hazardous and exploitative labor. The programming responds adequately to the children and youth risk factors thus ingraining a positive lifestyle of hope and purposefulness.
