Impact Story

Wazi exists to support people with their mental health, whether they have a diagnosed condition or just want to keep things in check with therapy.

The World Health Organization estimates that 1 in 4 people will have a mental health condition at some point in their lives, that means in Kenya there are over 12 million people who will need support. 

Services do exist, but there are barriers preventing people from connecting: 

  1. Access: Existing services are mainly in urban centres, so out of reach to many. Traffic is a nightmare and public transport is overcrowded. Clients often won’t travel to therapy when their mental health is poor. 

  2. Cost: High rent in urban centres means high treatment fees that many can’t afford. 

  3. Stigma: Clients are reluctant to have face-to- face therapy. 

Wazi solves these challenges and supports people to improve their mental health, whether they have a diagnosed condition, or simply want to keep things in check. 

  1. Professional Practitioners: A tailored service matching clients to therapists. 

  2. Companies: Companies offer Wazi as part of staff wellness programs.

  3. Partnerships: We partner with organisations connecting displaced/vulnerable populations to therapists.
