The Milele Model

Learn more about our model to achieve life-changing transformation in the lives of youths formerly living on the streets.


In Kitale, Kenya over 80% of the people living on the streets are over the age of 15. However, there are little to no services for this age group as they are disregarded by many. Milele fills this gap by specifically serving youth over the age of 15.

Street youth experience trauma, abuse, addiction, and more. Our outreach work consists of building relationships and trust with youth to find youth who are wanting services to get off the streets.



Transitional Program
This program helps rehabilitate youth from drugs, counsels their behavior and trauma, and prepares them with the social and behavioral skills to begin school or employment.

Family Reunification
Over 80% of children in orphanages have a living parent. Since research shows children do best in families, our social workers pursue restoration of these broken relationships through individual and family counseling and consistent home visits before a child returns home.



We focus on each individual, their needs, and their backgrounds to determine the best care plan for the teen. Whether that be vocational school, primary education, or higher education we seek to meet the individual's needs and talents to launch them into their future with purpose and confidence.

We are dedicated to helping each student find a path that aligns to their age and their passions.
