Local Roots

We are an organization headquartered in the informal settlement of Kibera in Nairobi, Kenya and led by local Kenyan staff. We have an office in the United States focused on developing global research partnerships and engaging supporters.

Holistic Programming

Our holistic approach focuses on offering the best quality primary healthcare services and coordinated educational programs. Each program was developed in close partnership with the community to accurately assess needs and to develop relevant, impactful programs.

Data & Evaluation

We are deeply committed to being an active community member and being the best we can be. This means our staff in Kibera are focused on tracking progress and gaining vital feedback to continually improve upon our programs in order to provide the highest quality services possible.

Collaborative Partnerships

We have a commitment to working collaboratively with other like-minded organizations to achieve maximum shared impact. We firmly believe in partnering together to leverage resources and not duplicate efforts. For example, from our foundations, we’ve enjoyed a deep and long-standing affiliation with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Connections from our founding years have led to continued engagements around research and valuable contributions from faculty, students, and alumni. In Kibera, we’ve had a long-standing relationship with the US Centers for Disease Control at Tabitha Medical Clinic where tremendous research has been conducted to inform informal settlements globally.
