Ablution block and Kitchen for 500 in Nairobi Slum



This project will provide 500 residents of a Nairobi slum with access to toilets, showers and safe cooking facilities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

People in the slum of Kawangware, Nairobi, Kenya lack access to toilets and showers. They also use kerosene and charcoal cookstoves that present fire hazards and create indoor air pollution. This project will provide toilets and generate methane from human waste. The methane will be used to heat water for showers and to cook food in a safe community kitchen. It will change lives by increasing dignity, reducing disease and generating income through access fees and selling food.

How will this project solve this problem?

With community participation in design and construction,, we will construct an ablution block and community kitchen, train the community in system operation and maintenance, and turn it over to the community for use and income generation.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will provide income-generating activities for 100 people, allowing them to provide for their families, and to save additional funds for further community improvements.
