What We Do
We are always there to help boys and at-risk male teens to make sense of the circumstances they’ve found themselves in and outside prison.
This helps them to come to terms with what has happened and had led to their current reality. This enables them to find creative solutions that makes charting a new path possible.
Lifesong Kenya provides an avenue for boys and at-risk male teens to learn a new skill that they can use to find creative solutions.
This includes teaching the boys ICT, positive masculinity, financial literacy, creative writing, soft skills and ensuring that we provide the best learning experience.
Vulnerable boys and at-risk male teens often face stigma and rejection from their peers, families and their community. As a result, they often end up having low self-esteem and engage in social vices such as crime and drug abuse.
We are trying to reduce this through our intervention and won’t stop until we get there.
Vulnerable and at-risk boys and male teens often blame themselves, their families, community and surroundings for their reality.
Their self-esteem and confidence is completely shattered and needs rebuilding. Our first step is to help them replace old habits with new thoughts and ways of doing things.
When crime and offence happens, relationships are ruined. As a result, conflicts happen and people who used to relate well don’t see eye to eye.
Our duty and responsibility is to provide a forum for healing and reconciliation between our boys, their families and the people they have hurt.
We rely on building and developing relationships with various stakeholders that include wonderful people like you!
Our success cannot be possible without help from others. We are grateful for those who continue to volunteer their time and skills and generous donations and giving.

Our Programs and Activities
Lifesong Kenya recognizes that boys and at-risk male teens who lack positive mentoring and sense of belonging, seek alternatives in violence, bullying, alcohol and drug abuse. As a result, relationships between people in the community is ruined and damaged.
This being so, our programs and activities seek to provide resources, training and a safe space for boys and at-risk male teens to develop, grow and thrive.
We are convinced that enhancing healthy relationships, character formation and skills training helps in the prevention and reduction of crime, drug abuse, violence and school drop out.
Therefore, our programs seek to bring together at-risk male teens, their families and the community in dialogue. This provides an avenue for making amends. In addition, it also brings closure to matters that may derail the development of at-risk male teens.
