HNP Town Centre Celebrates One Month

The first month of the HNP Town Centre in Kibera has been spent trying to bring our operations up to the high standards that we have set for ourselves. After the Community Opening on July 24th, which had more than 600 attendees (including local and international partners, Town Centre managers, 3Cs, community elders and most importantly the Kibera community), community residents were excited to finally be able to access services.

HNP Cleans Up Our Environmenet

On World Environmental Day,  we had a cleanup session in Kibera, about 200 metres from our Human Needs Project Kibera Town Centre. The cleanup included sweeping the roads, draining the ditches, garbage collection and dumping. It was good to participate as a team in making our environment better.  After the cleanup, we headed to Rowland camp for refreshments, lunch, and games.  We were honored with closing remarks from our partners Tunapanda group and Gamers group who were in charge of the garbage collection.
