350,000 live in an over-crowded
square mile in Nairobi, Kenya.

In this crowded community, residents struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle due to lack of access to quality healthcare, proper nutrition, and poor sanitation, leaving residents susceptible to a variety of diseases.

Gender inequality, limited access to education, unemployment, drugs, and substance abuse further impede individual and community progress.

In the largest informal settlement in Africa, residents struggle with limited access to resources and live with an increased risk of disease.

Positive change.

We’re on a mission to create pathways out of poverty.
