About Us

Life Bloom promotes peace building through inclusive partnerships between communities, government, and other key players.

Our Mission: We exist to support, guide vulnerable women and children survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in need of safe spaces by disrupting socio- cultural/systemic cycles of human trafficking. We adopt the survivor-led interventions to develop a safe future and become dignified leaders they deserve.

Life Bloom Services International is a women-led non-profit organisation founded in Sept 2004 working with vulnerable women and children survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation  in Nakuru, Narok and Nairobi Counties in Kenya, to regain choice and control over their lives, health, livelihoods in order for them to pursue a safe, prosperous, and healthy life of their choosing.

We are a team of women committed to supporting vulnerable women and children survivors of human trafficking and sexual exploitation and those at risk of trafficking. Life Bloom has successfully trained and graduated 1896 women and girls (and men too) who
would otherwise not have had an opportunity to receive any structured education and learning opportunities that are beneficiary centered. Our expertise in survivor-informed approaches has made us offer services to 12,779 beneficiaries through counseling, direct assistance, SRH and menstrual hygiene, and mentorship. https://rb.gy/bzsd

We are a small core local team, comprising seven members of staff based in Nakuru and Narok Counties, in Kenya. We are supported by Partners and The Friends of Life Bloom U.S.

What We Do (Core Program Components)

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, personalized introductory session. In the session, we identify the services and support that will initially be required to make sure they are safe and healthy. The support and services are modelled around Direct Assistance Approach of the 4-Ps pillars of: 

      1. Prevention: Advocacy, Lobbying, Capacity Development
      2. Protection: Rescues, Safety, Access to services
      3. Prosecution: Access to legal justice through partnerships with Court Users Committees (CUCs)
      4. Partnerships: Engaging with Government, Community leadership and Holding each other to account

More Information

In the long-term, we foster a community o 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.
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 have worked with funders and partners such as Equality Now, the Global Fund For Women, Friends of Life Bloom USA through Umoja Church & Kenya Help, the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund, and the United Nations Slavery Fund.
