Who We Are
Action for Children in Conflict (AfCiC) is a registered non-governmental organisation and UK Registered Charity (no.1060894) that has been working in Thika, Kenya, since 2004. We operate a range of programmes aimed at preventing, supporting and rehabilitating street and other acutely vulnerable children in the local area, and are focused on addressing the root causes of conflict that force children into exploitative and abusive situations (abuse, neglect, poverty, violence) through tailored prevention and rehabilitation programmes. We are dedicated to enabling and empowering children, their families, and the community, building a best practice model that can be shared and adopted by similar organisations throughout Kenya, Africa and beyond. Our work is primarily aimed not at getting children off the street in the short term, but building structures and processes that prevent children from running to the street in the first place.
A world of equal and sustainable opportunities for every child
To improve and sustain the holistic development of children, young people and their families, by facilitating access to justice, education, health and psychosocial and socio-economic support. This involves empowering communities to participate in the provision of fair and sustainable opportunities.
