Take a look back on our 2020 impact

OUR YEAR
IN PICTURES

Informal communities are highly vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic.

COVID-19 CFK RESPONSE

The communities we work with drive our efforts and inspire our work.

STORIES OF PROGRESS

We are committed to getting through this pandemic by working together.

WE ARE FRONTLINE RESPONDERS

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.

Our Mission

Carolina for Kibera exists to develop local leaders, catalyze positive change, and alleviate poverty in the informal settlement of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya. We combine public service with responsible research to inform and assist participatory development in Kibera and other informal settlements globally.

Primary Healthcare

Providing quality, affordable care through a truly holistic approach to support people at all stages of life.

Education & Livelihoods

Offering educational and work readiness services to invest in young leaders and help them secure employment.

Girls Empowerment

Creating a space for girls to hone their mentorship and advocacy skills that allow them to grow and thrive.

Take Action.
