Who We Are

Our Organization

Serene Haven Kenya is an organization aimed at giving equal opportunities to teenage mothers in the areas of education, skills development and employment. Data indicates that there are at least 150,000 teenage, mostly school going get pregnant every yearThese girls risk exclusion from the socio-economic landscape since most are unlikely to continue with their education.

Serene Haven Kenya was established in January and registered in July of 2019 as a community-based organization. We believe that teenage mothers and their babies, both born and unborn deserve to reach the highest level of self, social and professional development.  We work to make this ideal come true. The organizational office is located at the Serene Haven Centre, Nyeri along the Nyeri-Nyahururu road, 41Km from Nyeri town.
