The Neema Project exists to serve and equip vulnerable girls through education, counseling, and discipleship. Our vision is to create an environment where vulnerable girls experience healing, to bring transformation to their hearts, families, and their community for the glory of God.
"HE DELIVERED ME BECAUSE HE DELIGHTED IN ME."PSALM 18:19
The girls that join this family are coming from harsh realities that have caused them to experience rejection, a lack of dignity, and a very low sense of self worth. We desire to address these issues through love, grace, healing and relationships. Each of the girls who walks through our doors receives individual and group counseling. Each of the staff, from house parents to classroom instructors, care most about seeing each individual girl’s heart restored.
Many of the girls come into our program with very limited education. It’s hard for them to earn an income without a skill, so we provide skills training in tailoring, cosmetology, and some jewelry making. The girls are encouraged to work hard and learn as much as they can. In tailoring they can sit for the national exams to move to the next level of teaching. We want each of the girls to go away with a useful trade that will provide dignified work for them.
When each girl completes her time at the Neema Project and is reintegrated into her community our hope is that her presence there will transform the lives of her family and community members. We hope she’ll love and encourage them, helping to restore their hearts as hers was restored. We also hope she’ll use the training she received to impact her local economy – doing an apprenticeship, getting a good job, or even starting her own small business.
Our friends from Think Brownstone recently returned from a week long trip in Kenya, where they got to see and experience Neema first hand.
