Our History

We are a leading child protection, health and development organization that promotes access to equal and sustainable opportunities to children and vulnerable families

Action for Children in Conflict was founded in the year 2003, with its headquarters in Thika town, Kiambu County. Thika town is located 45 kilometers from Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya, just 45 minutes’ drive from Nairobi. Thika has a population of approximately over 645,000 people. Thika is an industrial town with extensive coffee and pineapple plantations dominating the geographical landscape.
However with the collapse of the Kenyan coffee market in the 1990s, continued economic decline caused unemployment rates to increase and a rapid growth in neighbouring slums such as Kiandutu (the largest slum in Thika), Kiang’ombe, Gacagi and Madharau.

Impoverished conditions resulted in an increase in the number of children living and
working on the streets, where they face numerous challenges as their rights are constantly violated. The children have difficulties accessing basic services such as food and healthcare and only a few of them benefit from any formal education. In this situation, they also become socially excluded, becoming trapped in a cycle of poverty, violence and abuse. This
in turn leads to a community in which a high number of youth are unemployed and with a
illiteracy level. As a result, Action for Children in Conflict was established in the year 2003 in order to improve the lives of children, women, vulnerable families and marginalized communities through promotion of accessibility to quality education, better health care, economic empowerment and advocacy of human rights and fundamental freedom as well as policy change.
