As We End 2019!

This year at  Nature Network we have accomplished so much and we are so glad it was possible. However, we would not have reached here without the support from you our well wishers.


The following ten points have been a highlight:

1. We secured support and facilitation to go toward our poultry, photography and Videography, Culinary activities and ICT programmes. We are so grateful to all those who support our work.

2. We were able to conduct psycho social support sessions. These enabled us to meet our beneficiaries and provided them the necessary interventions.

3.  Housing: We are able to accommodate beneficiaries and provide nutrition support to them.


4. Drop-in/ Resource Center: Where beneficiaries can access computer and education sessions.

5. Kitchen Gardens: We have half an acre of seed bed which we can turn into small vegetable gardens. The food that we get out of here is used by us.


6. Recognition/ Awards: We have awards for participating in National Netball Games held at Mombasa and Nairobi


7. Prayer sessions: We hold Kusaba/Kutendereza sessions where we also have spiritual music, communal prayers and affirming spaces.


8. Bridges of Love Alliance: We secured a partnership with action Aid-Kenya and together we shot the documentary depicting instances of tolerance between LGBT Communities and other actors.


9. Our members participated in an HRD Training on organizing, Leadership and Campaigns.


10. We were part of the Book Launch titled:  "Kenyan Christian Queer" by Professor Adriaan Van Klinken.

Affirmation is the new Liberation Theology, Professor Adriaan Van Klinken Points Out

Reading the book: "Religion, LGBT Activism, And Arts of Resistance in Africa; Kenyan Christian Queer," reveals facts behind Queer life and religion. Religion, can connect with LGBTIQ+, through, affirmation which in turn is necessary for resilience, celebrating identity, inclusion and dignity. These in turn cause tolerance toward LGBTIQ+.
Religious, political, economic, cultural and social factors are enablers for resilience which in turn ensure dignity of all persons. But, as barriers they stand in the way toward acquiring quality life aspirations. There are many other factors that trigger off this trend. However, nothing may beat the identity of persons. For LGBTIQ+ this fact is a daily lived experience. 
I took time to read this book, after we had finished a session with one of our interviewees on the subject of resilience. Simply put, resilience is the capacity to recover or to be tough. It is also persistence.
The book made me connect many aspects of life. It reminded m…

Could This Be The Love You Get From Your Biological Parents?

We love the family created at the Nature Network.
 It is a nurturing safe space.
It is also a safe space for people to lead and leave as a family.
We are so proud to have it, for it represent the best family ever in our lives. 

One visitor said:
" I always feel at home, when I come to Nature Network House. It is a home away from home!"

The next time you are sitting in your living room or sharing a meal with your family, ask yourself:  Do I truly feel at home? Am I doing everything possible to build a healthy family and household?   Do guests feel welcome here? And, above all, Does G-d feel comfortable in my home?


When a family shares principles and values, they grow together.

The home becomes a foundation for the family’s shared sense of purpose. It also provides a springboard for each member to pursue his, her and their own goals.
In such homes, families stay up late talking heart-to-heart about what’s on their minds. Children crowd around grandparents to hear stories. Teenagers deba…
