St. Bakhita House of Hope is vocational training and women/girls empowerment center located in the slums of Langas, Eldoret – Kenya. Our main focus is to power-up women and girls through vocational training, life skills and enterprise development. Concurrently, we create an inclusive platform for our women/girls from diverse ethnic, social and economically humble backgrounds to engage and inspire themselves to take active roles in community peacebuilding and sustainable development. Ultimately, we aim to become a center where hopes, aspirations and dreams of women and girls are housed, flourished and promoted.
We envision a society where women/girls are economically self-sustained and socially well-engaged
To build the capacity of women/girls in vocational skills, enterprise development as well as community peacebuilding

St. Bakhita was first established in 2008 as a rescue centre to support vulnerable girls affected by the 2008 post-electoral violence. First known as St. Bakhita Rescue Centre, our original goal was to simply serve as a home for the affected girls by providing a roof to shelter them from the street.
