Our work in Kenya
JRS Kenya operates two temporary protection houses for survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SVGB) and children with protection needs, offering comprehensive case management, psychosocial support, and skills training. These services help achieve stability and develop skills necessary to transition to a more sustainable situation.
JRS Kenya also operates five special needs protection facilities, where individuals can access psychosocial services and their parents/caregivers can receive counselling and training. JRS continues to operate protection centers for people with disabilities, offering essential services, psychosocial support, and conducting community outreach to identify more home-bound people with disabilities.
JRS manages and supports the running of secondary schools in Kakuma. This involves recruiting and employing teachers, making sure there is access to materials like textbooks, exercise books, IT equipment, and stationery, building physical classrooms, and WASH facilities.
