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. By maintaining a participatory focus, continuing to invest in youth leadership potential, and forming key ethical research and community-led development partnerships, the future is full of possibility and promise for talented youth in informal settlements.
