The Dinner Ladies of Kilifi County
In Kilifi County, Kenya, a group of local mothers has stepped in as dinner ladies, making sure children get a hot meal – and therefore keep coming to class.
Since 1982, Plan International Kenya has been working with communities and the government to raise awareness about the importance of children’s rights.
As an independent children’s rights organisation, we remain committed to supporting vulnerable and marginalised children and their communities to be free from poverty. We have impacted the lives of millions of children and established strategic partnerships with like-minded allies.
A number of barriers still stand in the way of realising children’s rights in Kenya including child marriage, child labour, trafficking, female genital mutilation and violence.
We apply a rights-based approach in working towards transformed institutions, laws and communities that respect the rights of children, especially girls, in Kenya.
We are active in 9 counties across the country: Nairobi, Machakos, Kajiado, Tharaka Nithi, Kilifi, Kwale, Bondo, Homabay, and Kisumu
Our current priorities include:
Act now. Save lives.
