Daughters of Kenya (DoK) is a non-profit making National Trust Organization working towards improving and changing the lives of vulnerable girls and young women in Kenya and beyond. It was established in 2016 and registered in October 19, 2017 as a Corporation Trust, having been incorporated under the Trustees (Perpetual Succession) Act Cap 164 of the Laws of Kenya.
DoK programs targets vulnerable girls and young women aged between 12-35 years. DoK strategic Programs are focused on empowering, improving and changing the lives of the vulnerable girls and young mothers in Kenya. While working in urban informal settlements and marginalized communities, we encountered several cases of abuse and exploitation of vulnerable girls which brought us to the realization that this is where help is needed the most.
Our initial activities included reaching out to vulnerable girls in schools and communities in Nairobi, including those in Kibera and Mukuru slums, through life skills training, mentorship, sponsorship and provision of sanitary pads. Spurred by the support of like-minded social innovators, the organization has grown over the years.
Daughters of Kenya believes in family and therefore working to ensuring that girl and young women experience the love and security that only a family can provide. We are working towards an excellent life and therefore welcome new partners and believe that together, we can achieve better results!
Today, DoK continues to be at the forefront of empowering vulnerable girls and young mothers. Its founder Ms. Knight Muteti was conferred on the Award of ICONIC WOMEN CREATING A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL at the global Women Economic Forum 2017 held on 8-13, May 2017; New Delhi, India. She has also participated in leadership Training, Forums, Workshops, Conferences and Global Meetings in Uganda, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Italy, Malaysia, Norway, Switzerland and France. DoK is run by an able staff team and governed by a 5 member board of trustees.
