Akae Dwelling

Mombasa

Akae [swahili for stay, abide] is a housing project addressing the commercial sex exploitation of women and children along the South Coast of Kenya.
Our goal at the dwelling is to provide a place to live for women coming off the streets and to equip them with job skills.

Akae Dwelling

Our project began by turning several storage containers into a 6-unit dwelling which now provides safe and affordable housing for women coming off the streets and their children. Our community is a supportive environment for women who want to pursue alternative employment paths. We have seen women succeed at starting their own businesses, such as a restaurant and a salon.
