About

We have women in communities across Kenya working to rescue victims of child rape, often from within the family. Mothers are too terrified to report the cases and in many instances the police do nothing anyway. Mostly a mother with five children to the same man is simply financially unable to take them away to safety and so she lets the rape continue, she is helpless to prevent it.  But  The Phoenix Project was born to prevent it. We offer these abused children and their mothers and their siblings a way out, a new life and medical and emotional support. Where the abuse is part of a tribal culture we are entirely driven by what the women themselves want. And what we are hearing is that they do not want FGM and for girls to be sold into marriage aged 11. Our rescue and refuge centre in Rombo takes these girls, keeps them safe and even gives them what their fathers would never allow - an education in our tiny school. The Phoenix Project has already saved dozens of children and young people from the trauma of rape. Help us save more.

Event details

The Phoenix Project

We rescue mothers and their children from rape within the marriage, rescue girls from FGM and sale into marriage with old men, relocate families in safe communities, offer medical help where necessary and counselling for everyone. We set the relocated mothers up in businesses which mean they can look after their families and have people in all our safe communities who will oversee the rebirth of these women, girls and boys.
