At Human Needs Project (HNP) we partner with community members in Kibera slum for clean water, sanitation, and a path out of poverty – giving the gift of opportunity, health and dignity.
HNP is collaborating with Pamoja radio station on marketing the Kibera Town Centre and the services provided to the community. With lots of local listeners, Pamoja radio station is the most popular station in Kibera and it broadcasts mostly in Swahili and Sheng’/slang languages. HNP has a one hour show every week, talking about the Kibera Town Centre and the services that are provided. After we talk about our newest classes and offerings, we take questions from the listeners--similar to other radio talk shows.
On May 26, we underwent a First Aid Training facilitated by Melchizedek Hospital. This was conducted at our H.N.P offices. The training was to help us be in a position of saving people who might be injured at the Kibera Town Centre. The training was very helpful because once we open the centre, employees will be handling a lot of machinery which may expose them to getting injuried. And even with the best of preventative strategies in place, we have to be prepared if the customers get injured. All these skills were first level skills, to help people before they are rushed to the hospital.
Road to Freedom Scholarship forms part of Human Needs Project’s Community investment. To truly become a part of the community we work in, HNP engages actively in education as a cornerstone of our mission to provide Basic Services to people living in slums. Help us become even better – please sign up to volunteer, and donate to help pay for school tuitions, RFS organizers, clothing, transport and school trips.
