KWCWC -The Kenya Women and Children Wellness Centre campus is the generous donation of the James R. Jordan Foundation International and their international partners. It was registered as a not-for-profit organization in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2010.
KWCWC, through its community outreach program, addresses sexual and Gender Based Violence in Kasarani and surrounding areas which include among others, Babadogo, Githurai, Kahawa West, Korogocho and Mathare.
The comprehensive program will develop new structures and networks to address GBV by improving case detection, management and identification, timely reporting, referral to quality care, proper evidence collection and response through a multi-sectoral collaborative approach.
KWCWC has also commissioned a baseline survey to identify GBV trends in Roysambu and establish bottlenecks to access to justice, medical service and psychosocial support for survivors of GBV. Gaps for the study findings will be relevant in policy advocacy and in strengthening delivery for survivors of GBV.

Services offered will include Health Care services, short- and long-term psychosocial support, social and economic empowerment, building capacity to improve service delivery. KWCWC partnerships will fuse together data to generate new information to improve programming and inform innovation and drive national policy. The Center will employ healthcare innovations including Tele-Counselling to expand its reach to disenfranchised communities within Kenya and the rest of Africa. The center as a tech enabled hub is well positioned to bring together the continent stakeholders to spearhead normative change around GBV towards more lasting
