Water is not only the essence of life, but it is also the essence of Kibera Town Centre. It flows through all of our basic services: clean water, toilets, and laundry. We are so excited to have our own source of clean water and even more excited about our creative recycle/re-use system that was developed just for Kibera Town Centre’s wastewater. We are proud to pilot this system because we think it can be useful in so many areas around the world.» Full Story
