How it Started

My name is Knight Muteti Langat, Founder and Executive Director; Daughters of Kenya (DoK).
Ideally, Founded in November 11, 2016, Daughters of Kenya (DoK) is a National Trust organization guided by Christian Values working towards improving and changing the lives of the vulnerable girls and young mothers in Kenya. DoK was established as a Kenyan Charitable Trust incorporated under the Trustees (Perpetual Succession) Act Cap 164 of the Laws of Kenya.DoK implements its programs in Kajiado, Machakos and Nairobi (Kibera and Mukuru slums) Counties targeting the Vulnerable Girls and Young Mothers. Vulnerable Girls aged 6 – 19 years and young mothers aged 12 – 35 years are targeted in Strategic Programs namely; Education and Life Skills Training, End Violence Against Girls and Women (Social Protection) and Livelihood and Economic Empowerment for Sustainability (Sustainable Livelihoods). We have keen interest especially to those who at risk or already going through harmful practices such as female genital mutilation, child marriage, sexual exploitation and Gender based Violence. We have a commitment to eliminate all forms of violence, combat traditional and harmful practices and foster the general respect of human rights in Kenya.

For our sponsorship project under our Education Program, we have established our a Technical and Educational Institution called Daughters of Kenya Institute of Entrepreneurship (DOKIE) where vulnerable girls and young mothers are either partially or fully sponsored. Daughters of Kenya Institute of Entrepreneurship (DOKIE) is a Technical Educational and Vocational Training Institute in Kenya under DoK Trust Education Program for deserving and vulnerable youth. DOKIE is anchored on economic empowerment through skills development for entrepreneurship and practical skills acquisition through internships, apprenticeships (both formal and informal) and job placement in emerging industries.
