Our History

OUR PROGRESSION STORY

2013 - 2015

In 2013, Humanity Rescue Foundation, conducted a comprehensive research on the impact of inadequate provision of sanitary towels and education on menstrual hygiene to young adolescents. Existing gaps highlighted by the findings of the research, necessitated the introduction of the ‘Sanitary towels and pants program’. Between 2013 -2015, the program kept 2,000 young adolescent girls (9-14) years of age in ten primary schools in Embu, Nairobi and Tharaka Nithi counties in Kenya, through provision of free sanitary towels and panties.The programme was also able to offer mentorship and sexual reproductive education to both girls and boys as well one center for special needs children within the counties of operation.

2016

In April 2016, Humanity Rescue Foundation team visited Industrial Area Remand and Allocation prison remand to celebrate mass with inmates and offer spiritual, psychological and psycho-social support, identify potential beneficiaries for adoption as foster sons, donate sanitary items, spiritual books and clothing. Also to identify the challenges faced by inmates, promote co-existence between inmates and prison officers and support a more just humane and effective penal system.

In June same year, the team deliberated and agreed that it was necessary to have a holistic intervention that promotes the successful rehabilitation and sustainable rehabilitation of prisoners. The team conducted a series of sensing visits to the prisons and prisons key stakeholders to perform a needs assessment exercise.

2018

Based on this assessment, in 2018, the Embracing Skills Magerezani-a prisoners rehabilitation and re-integration program was conceptualized. While the program has not been officially launched, it is being prototyped through different events and re-integration interventions in various prisons. After-interventions that have so far been successful i.e. Christmas si Christmas bila chapo event in December 2018; a celebration of the festive season with inmates to provide support, identify existing talents within Kamiti medium prison to provide a knowledge base and gain a deeper understanding of the gaps and challenges arising during the festive season.

2019

Re-integration intervention In January 2019; provided support for a released inmate to comfortably go back home to Muranga. A Date with an inmate; a valentine’s celebration that successfully brought together stakeholders involved in the criminal justice system to highlight and address the successes, challenges and existing gaps in the criminal justice system. A day that also incorporated 1st ever Mr. Kamiti Medium Prison.

MAKUENI WOMEN REMAND PRISON: Women’s day Celebration in March 2019; a celebration and appreciation of the beauty, courage and resilience of women in society through a day of wellness and beauty therapy together with other partners. Miss Makueni Women Remand Prison in August, 2019: an event marking the international prisoners’ justice day through talent nurturing and capacity building of inmates and officers: running support from their communities and calling upon other state actors to support successful rehabilitation and sustainable re-integration structure.

In 2019, based on the experience, expertise and challenges of some of HRF members necessitated the formation of a sickle cell anemia management (clinic, support groups: affordable and accessible medication), and social-economic support system (advocacy & alternative sources of income) from this, the candle of Hope program was conceptualized. The program was officially launched in June 29th 2019 together with the launch of the Catherine’s Sickle Cell Clinic in partnership with Houghton Medical clinic.
