"Salama Charities has been like a family to me. I wish there was a word, a way with which I could express my gratitude. My experience has taught me to look at those less fortunate than myself and to see my blessings. My hope is to help others who, like me, can build a better life, if they receive a helping hand.”

Why we do what we do.

Disabled children whose mobility is limited or have a mental impairment are in many cases hidden away for fear of stigmatisation due to superstitious beliefs by the communities around them. They also become easy targets to perpetrators of gender based violence.

Salama Charities aims to alleviate some of the hardship that these young people are going through. Any meagre financial means that a poor family has will fund the educational needs of their able bodied children. This is understandable but does not mean that we should stand by and let disabled children be marginalised. We help these children lead as normal a life as possible given their circumstances by supporting them in day, boarding or vocational schools.

“Salama Trust sponsored my undergraduate education at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. Salama offered me a scholarship in 2012 while I was in my second year of studies. My father had passed away 4 years before and it was increasingly difficult for my mother to take care of my brother and me because she was unemployed. Without the support of Salama Charities, I would not have been able to continue my studies. I am truly thankful to Salama Charities for making it possible to pursue them without fear.
