About Us

Welcome to Frolics Of Hope Africa

Frolics of Hope Africa is a non-profit organization founded after six siblings were rescued in November 2018 in Nakuru, Kenya after they were found malnourished and neglected. 

The core focus of our work is trauma healing, education, technical and vocational training for children and young women impacted by violence and from impoverished backgrounds. We are proud of our work aligning with six of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals

Gender equality is a priority across the organization’s education programs, whereby it ensures the provision of safe learning environments with appropriate and adequate facilities, materials and gender-sensitized academic support for boys and girls  without  discrimination.With every intervention, Frolics of Hope Africa identifies the following key areas where assistance is needed: 

Through the Adopt a Child initiative, needy children are receive education sponsorships. The ability to keep children in school has been made possible by our donor community and school principals who partner with us.

Trauma & Healing – Social workers and counsellors are available at our center, including for traumatized children and young women who have been rescued following violence and young girls who became mothers after sexual exploitation. The focus is on enabling traumatized individuals to heal and integrate back into society.

Rescue – We provide immediate assistance to children in need whenever possible. Through our connection with the directorate of criminal investigations, we are able to provide shelter to those who need it as we identify how to help them and fight for their rights.

Lastly, monitoring, evaluation, and learning help Frolics of Hope Africa identify what works and what doesn’t. The ability to adapt to change, mobilize more resources, and maximize funds ensures the organization’s sustainability. Our team of dedicated board members bring a wealth of knowledge to the organization’s structure.

We recognize the challenges facing children today and are committed to ensuring they are not exploited, and that their rights are respected without racial, ethnic, religious, or political discrimination. 

We are humbled and thankful to the donor community that continues to support our cause.
