HNP’s training rooms have been busy this fall. Another HNP collaborator, the Somo Project, is also offering entrepreneurial training to Kiberans at the Town Centre, but this training is very intense and targeted. First Somo identified community members with the vision, skills, self-belief, and focus to build meaningful social enterprise in important focus areas: health, education and the environment.
To help its neighbors and teach children about proper sanitation, HNP donated two toilets for exclusive free use by the children at Jamy Quality Education Centre, right next door to the Town Centre. John Milla, Chariman of the Kibera Multipurpose Cooperative and a familiar face to most of the children and within the community, commissoned the opening of these two toilets on October 1. Following the cutting of the ribbon, Chairman Milla gave a great speech promoting HNP’s role in advocating for cleanliness and good hygiene practices.
