About Us

Who we are

We are an emerging organization with big dreams for the future and a dedicated team that works towards our goals.

Through ups and downs, as well as fluctuations in our team size, we have persevered and we're still fighting every day for a better world.  Hekima is a non-profit organization committed to leading the fight against child exploitation, where we safeguard vulnerable children's and adolescents' rights within the country.

Why we do What we do
Our work is more than a normal business; it is driven by our inner calling. That is why we dedicate ourselves to ensuring that no child lives or works on the streets, no child is trafficked, and no one is involved in child labor. By doing so, we aim to break the cycle of exploitation among children."

Areas of Focus:

  • Child Protection and Participation: This likely involves implementing measures and programs to safeguard the rights and well-being of children. It could involve legal and social interventions to prevent abuse, exploitation, and neglect.

  • Community child  based care : Parents, family, and community members are accountable for caring for children within the local area, utilizing the available resources to ensure their well-being.  "Children do not belong to the institution or childcare centers; they belong to their families.  Let the community and family do their responsibility, and we do ours." 

  • Youth livelihood, partnership, and exchange: This points towards a focus on equipping young people with the necessary skills and knowledge to explore. Get more open-mindedness through intercultural and learning among youth through training, life skills, and mentorship programs. 

Our Core Values

  Protecting children’s rights: It is everyone's duty to uphold the rights of children.

Belonging: Children belong in their communities.

Resilience: Adopting the changes to access their rights and improve their lives.

Our Mission: 

To inspire children and youth to achieve the impossible by unlocking their full potential and advocating for their rights.

 We are focused on identifying and connecting, transforming children and youth, reunification, sustainability and prevention to reduce exploitation, violence and poverty. We aim to ensure that all children deserve to live in the families and get good care like right to education, a peaceful environment, and proper parental care. We want to prepare their future so they can achieve their aspirations and realize their individual talents. Hekima strives to accomplish community cohesion and development for children, youth, and their family.

Our Method:

Hekima has a day center for children to access medical care, food, and sanitation. 

They also are able to wash their clothes and obtain education and life skills such as cooking, hygiene, and agricultural practices. Hekima leaders and volunteers also conduct street visits to assess the needs of children living and working on the street. We provide information about their rights and the dangers of life on the street. We connect with government social welfare officers to register children and access information regarding their family to eventually reunite them. When children are reunited with their family, we assess safety and their ability to support them. We have made it possible for children to return to school or gain apprenticeships to become self sustainable. 

 Children indeed should be growing up in families where they are protected, nurtured, and provided with the care and support they need. A strong family foundation greatly contributes to their overall well-being and future success.
