"Project is 100% completed "

The Association “Kounkuey Design Initiative” (KDI) partnered with residents of impoverished areas to create low cost, high-impact built environments called Productive Public Spaces (PPS). KDI implemented three “productive public spaces” including river bolstering, environmental remediation, water supply, sanitation facilities, community buildings and micro-businesses in partnership with residents of the Kibera slums in Nairobi. The economic and social benefits of the reclaimed river and public spaces engendered a new spirit of environmental stewardship.
