About Kangemi Youth

Akili has a partnership with the youth of Kangemi, Nairobi’s 3rd largest slum. Our contributions so far include:

  • Assisting in the formation of a Water Resource Users Association (WRUA) and registering it with the government
  • Assisting in proposal writing that has resulting in securing funding from government to sensitize the people of Kangemi in the conservation of water catchment areas by among others, initiating income generating activities
  • Developing a micro plastic recycling ‘plant’ for converting waste plastics into fencing poles.

This project is ongoing and open to accommodate more partners.
