Together, Let's Make The World
For Girls, Women & Children
Our vision is to help women and their children regain choice and control over their lives, health, and livelihoods in order for them to develop the independent and safe future they want and deserve. Support Our Vision
We exist to support and guide women and vulnerable children in need of safe spaces from uncertain, unsafe household situations, to develop the independent and safe future they want and deserve.
Life Bloom Services International is a non-profit organization working with at-risk women and children in Nakuru County, Kenya, to support them in pursuing a safe, prosperous, and healthy life of their choosing.
We are a team of women committed to supporting at-risk women and children with our expertise in counseling, menstrual and sexual hygiene, and mentoring. We are a small core local team, comprising seven members of staff based in Nakuru County, Kenya. We are supported by The Friends of Life Bloom U.S.
What We Do
Any woman or child that comes through Life Bloom’s doors, or is referred to us by an institution, community member, or community leader is invited to an initial, personalised introductory session, during which we can identify the services and support that might initially be required to make sure they are safe and healthy. As a first step they may be directed to any of the following Life Bloom programs:
Rescue & Shelter
Life Skills Training
Menstrual & Sexual Health Skills
Women’s Self-Help Group
Our impact so far
We have supported 63 children in their basic education
126 clients referred to family planning services and 470 clients referred to HIV services.
Child Support Services
42 children supported and offered referrals to child support services
55 women enrolled for EBU scholarship courses, 39 graduated.
Accompanied 87 women for COVID vaccination appointments
In the long-term, we foster a community of mentors and group support systems, for both women and children that allow individuals to access support and guidance for many years to come, and continually keep moving in the direction that they want their life to go.
What’s The Problem?
More than 41% of Kenyan women report having suffered physical or sexual violence from their spouse or partner according to a recent Demographic and Health Survey Report
10% of young girls in some parts of Kenya engage in transactional sex in exchange for sanitary pads (according to UNICEF)
What We Want To Do
We need to continue providing vital support to women and children across Nakuru County, and expand access to our services, as well as referral to further services and opportunities. There is an increasing number of women and girls in need of support to regain choice and control over their lives. Guided by our Strategic Plan, in the next 4 years we intend to reach 445 women and girls with the opportunities that we have proven can support them in pursuing a safe, prosperous, and healthy life of their choosing.

We also have long-term partnerships with the Nakuru County Government, the Kenya Red Cross, and the Naivasha sub-county Children’s Department.
