Action for Children in Conflict (AfCiC) UK in Kenya was founded in the year 2003 with its headquarters in Thika town. AfCiC is a leading Child protection, health and development organization that implements projects at the heart of the community. The organization runs programmes aimed at preventing and protecting children living and working on the streets of Thika town and its environs. The interventions offered for the children by AfCiC include rescue, rehabilitation and reintegration; where the children are offered life skills, basic care, protection and health care.
Partnership and networking are key elements of AfCiC’s approach. AfCiC learns from influences and partners with the community, local government, national NGOs and donors to build long term relationships and to ensure solutions are holistic and address the breadth of the community’s children needs and promote the rights of vulnerable children including street children and orphans to access basic health care, education and security.
