Our team looks forward to working with youth in Kenya in partnership with other organizations and homes. Together, we will begin establishing a trauma informed community and therapeutic programs for youth.
We are dedicated to creating environments where children and youth can come as they are and have an opportunity to change their future. We recognize that youth are destined for great things, but may have the barrier of past trauma and insecurities keeping them from obtaining their dreams. The staff of Kutoa Project has ongoing supervision, training workshops, and follow-up reviews to ensure that all youth will be receiving the best quality care. By creating a place where youth can constructively work through these experiences, youth can become a generation that see their dreams become reality. We believe that working through a child’s past will allow them to move forward with their life in a way that their past no longer defines them or holds them back. They will know that they are loved, not only by us, but by our Savior.
Kutoa Project is dedicated to ensuring that all of its staff members and partners are equipped for working with youth who have experienced trauma. Kutoa Project hosts regular, local training workshops and larger conferences to address trauma care, child development, the process of assessing at-risk youth, crisis assistance, and leadership. These training are available not only to the staff and partners of Kutoa Project, but also to any locals who have the desire to see change happen in Kenyan youth. If you would like to know about our next training or interested in having us come train your organization, please send us an email!
Like many of us, we realize that youth need outside support to be successful. This is an area of Kutoa Project our Founder is most passionate about. How do we get the youth involved in their community and local churches so they are surrounded by positive support systems? Many of the youth we work with are living in institution type settings like children’s homes and rescue centers where they have a lack of positive support systems outside of that institution. We desire to create ways for these youth to get off campus, get plugged into their community, and find positive support systems so when they leave the institution they have a group of people cheering them on. Kutoa Project has started doing this by providing opportunities for the youth to be involved in sports where mentorship is a focus and finding local leaders to come and mentor the youth. Our goal is to create more programs where the community will come and support these youth so no youth feels like they are alone.
Our goal is that one day permanent locations would be established to serve communities. Theses will not only be places for counseling to resolve past trauma, but also a place where we can assist youth in the midst of crisis including sexual abuse, suicidal thoughts, domestic or family violence, or gang-related violence. We would love to have a medical room where these individuals could come and receive immediate care, have a social worker there to assist with their crisis, receive resources, and give them a temporary safe place to stay. We believe God can make all things possible, and we will continue to pray expectantly for the opportunity to provide this service to Kenyan youth. In the meantime, our focus is on establishing Kutoa Project to provide therapeutic services to Kenyan youth.
