New Scent Centre International

Children
new scent centre international

This is a children’s rescue home that was launched in the year 2015 to offer institutionalized services to rape and sexually assaulted survivors, treatment and rehabilitation of women alcoholics and substance abusers.

The Project

New Scent Centre International also carries out community outreaches for prevention, sensitization and awareness creation on sexual violence as a form of Gender Based Violence, alcoholism and substance abuse in pursuit of a healed and restored society. Kenya is creating a safe and caring space for 40 children who have been sexually assaulted and abandoned on the streets of Kenya. These girls have been rescued from some of the most horrible experiences you can imagine. At the New Scent Center, they have shelter, food and are receiving an education that gives them hope and opportunity. Flora Mwikali and her team are shepherds moving these young children from despair to hope. The staff walks the streets searching for children who have been cast away or have lost their families. It is a mission of Justice and Mercy.
