Guided by our Mission, we work with compassion and vigor through our engagements to empower the vulnerable persons, refugees, youth and women on livelihood and self-reliance. One of the few organizations practicing multicultural collaboration with members from different cultural backgrounds and orientations. Oak Solutions Centre envisions a world where the vulnerable persons (refugees, women and youth) have the opportunity to earn a living and be self-reliant; being a quality of depending on yourself and your abilities to get through the challenges of life on the back of your own resourcefulness. The vulnerable persons have their dignity and hope reaffirmed when their-livelihoods; the capabilities, assets and activities required for them to earn money and secure a means of living is secure. This being one of the most effective ways to rebuild lives and alleviate poverty. Their desire for self-reliance challenges the common preconception that they are a burden on host communities. By fulfilling their potential and sharing their talents, refugees, women and the youth fully contribute to the growth, strength, and stability of communities. The Oak Solutions Centre goal is to build resilient refugees, youth, women and host communities through holistic program approaches that lead to economic independence and creative economic recovery activities, utilizing gender transformative approaches to create positive change for women and their communities.

Inspired by Love our work expresses the commitment to promote formation of grassroots groups of women, refugees and the youth with the aim of increasing their self-reliance to achieve full participation in their communities, break through barriers and forge their own path to a healthier future and attain equal rights as we alleviate poverty through guiding talents to skills and recognizing gifts as capital. Oak Solutions Centre works with civil society and responsible authorities in Kenya to promote protection of rights and peaceful coexistence.
