The Beehive, Africa is a refuge for child mothers and their children. Our aim is to transform young lives through compassion, love and hope. We are a non-profit charity based on Christian values.

Society in Kenya…

Kenya is on the eastern coastline of Africa. There are many inequalities in wealth distribution and human rights. Furthermore, around 70% of Kenyan families are chronically vulnerable due to poor nutrition.

However, life for Child mothers can be even worse. Approximately 25% of girls in Kenya have given birth by the age of 18. Early childhood pregnancies are common in Kenya as they are being frequently exposed to sexual exploitation and abuse.

If girls become pregnant, they can be chased away from their families and communities, or forced into having life-threatening illegal abortions, beaten, or even killed. While shame keeps many girls isolated and disconnected from any services in which they may find help. The younger a girl is, the more discrimination she may face.

Because of the culture of silence and lack of resources for victims of sexual exploitation and abuse, there is no government safety net and very limited help in the charitable sector for child mothers. For this reason, the Beehive was set up to fill this gap and support as many vulnerable girls as we can.

About us…

Based in Nakuru County, Kenya, the Beehive refuge uses a holistic approach to help child mothers on the road to recovery from trauma. We build safe, stable and loving homes which centre on traditional family values. We help the girls navigate the difficult transition into motherhood and provide them with support and life skills they need to be good mothers.

While also ensuring they receive the care and support needed for them to complete their own childhood. Our carers support the girls and look after their children as they return to school or training to learn key life skills, and grow into confident, happy and capable young women.
