AA Kenya EMAIL ADDRESS:
Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. (Reprinted with permission of The A.A. Grapevine, Inc)
We in A.A. are men and women who have discovered, and admitted, that we cannot control alcohol. We have learned that we must live without it if we are to avoid disaster for ourselves and those close to us. With over 15 groups in Nairobi and 3 in Mombasa, we are part of an informal international fellowship with members in more than 100 countries. We have but one primary purpose: to stay sober ourselves and to help others who may turn to us for help in achieving sobriety.
We are united by a common problem, alcohol. Meeting and talking and helping other alcoholics together, we are somehow able to stay sober and lose the compulsion to drink, once a dominant force in our lives. Our fellowship is therefore altruistic and does not engage in any economic activities. We meet in several locations on different days as the meeting list herein indicates. We are aware that in our communities people with alcohol problems are dying helplessly. If you live in a large place, there are hundreds. High and low, rich and poor, these are future fellows of Alcoholics Anonymous.
