Hear from our past Researchers


“The staff at CFK was incredibly welcoming and kind during my stay in Kibera. The passion of the staff towards their work in Kibera and creating new collaborations was clear. From strategizing data collection methods, to assisting with field data collection, to inviting me to daily lunch outings — I quickly felt part of this tight knit team.”

-Rasheca Logendran, Masters in Public Health and Public Policy, Robertson Scholar


We are always looking for passionate people to advance our mission through impact driven research.
