ABOUT KRTC

OUR HISTORY

A group of concerned youth established the Kibera Reformation and Transformation Centre (KRTC) in 2003 as a community-based organization (CBO) in Nairobi’s Kibera slums. The founding members wanted to help needy children growing up in an environment of extreme poverty and constant threat of malnutrition, disease, violence, crime, and drug abuse.

KRTC started a program in 2019 to rehabilitate about 30 street children from the streets of Nairobi. Our program focuses on popular activities like football, and counseling, personal hygiene, and providing supplies. Our goal is to better their life and in the long-term re-integrate them with their families and home communities, attach them to NGOs with means to provide them with fully adequate support, and enable them to earn an income.

The first generation of youth who formed KRTC about 15 years ago has matured into senior managers of the organization and leaders of the community. KRTC is led by Mr. Isaac Lumwachi, who is a founding member and social worker. Our principle focus at KRTC is livelihood improvement and wealth creation through the provision of development support, care, lobby and advocacy for the plight of street children in Kibera, Kenya.

 KRTC under the leadership of Isaac Lumwachi, supports and engages street children in activities meant to discover their abilities and talents, capacity building and to initiate and drive their creative abilities by harnessing and growing their resources as well as improving their well-being through constructive dialogue and transformative and targeted actions.
