I have lived in the streets, I know how important it is during this time to have a helping hand that’s why I support many to get out of the streetsPauline Kamanja – GMI President
GMI began its programs in 2013 and became officially incorporated as a 501c3 in 2017. There has been huge success in GMI’s programs, from reconnecting street children with their families to providing street families with access to food and clean water. GMI seeks for empowering and transformative programs to enable streets families to live a decent life. We begun a daycare in Ruiru, Kenya to enable mothers of the children in the daycare to go and work, providing income for their families. This transformed to a full fledged primary school which, as of January 2020, has a 50 students enrolled. GMI has also been involved in women empowerment activities in northern Kenya joining in the fight against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
