More than 35 women and girls enjoyed a yoga class at the Town Centre today. Most of the women had never done yoga before, and it took them outside of their comfort zone. They get a lot of daily exercise walking and carrying jerry cans of water and other goods, but the yoga poses helped them stretch and discover new muscles. They found it challenging yet relaxing.
HNP Gives Kiberans A Guide to Their Future in Global Coding Event
More than thirty students took a small step toward their future by participating in the global "Hour of Code" campaign last week, December 8-14. The HNP-Kibera Town Centre Cyber Café opened its doors for free to the Kibera community for several sessions of this campaign.
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.
