Need: Funding for Beyond Innocence Foundation(BIF)- Kenya
The Beyond Innocence Foundation (BIF) was founded in 2012 and officially registered in 2013. BIF is a Non -Govermental Organization that aims to provides a safe house, a home and rescue center for abused minors. The home is the only facility in Taita County so far, offering shelter for sexually, emotionally & physically abused minors, including those running away from early or forced marriages.
The main objective is to build a rescue center where apart from removing the minors from abusive environment, treatment will be provided to the minors and the families. During the time of treatment, the minors will also have a chance to keep up with school work by attending classes within the home. Workshops will also be organized to educate the local community regarding abuse.
Our aim is to have a home that can accommodate 50 minors for a duration of 3-6 months at a time. During this time intensive counseling and treatment will be provided to the minors and families. Dedicated social workers will be assigned to handle the cases and work hand in hand with authorities to assist in case building. The home will have a permanent doctor/ counsellor living at home reachable 24 hours.
We will have 6 permanent structures consisting of: Girls' Dormitory, Boys' Dormitory, Offices& Administration, Staff Quarters, Classrooms & library, Dispensary/health centre. We also need a brick walled fence, borehole, solar panels etc. To have the home up and running, we need to raise approximately 500, 000 Euros.
We welcome ideas and tips on fund raising. We also appreciate your help in spreading the word about BIF.
