Korogocho Slums

Thank you very much for your interest in Plentishare.

Watch this video, in which the Korogocho community expresses their deep appreciation for Plentishare and your generous support of the important School Building project, which will help to enrich the lives of their children.

Korogocho Slums is one of the largest slum neighborhoods in Nairobi, Kenya. The slum is home to 250,000 people, who are pressed into 1.5 square kilometers, northeast of Kenya’s capital, Nairobi. Korogocho Slum is estimated to be the fourth largest slum in Nairobi, after Kibera, Mathare Valley, and Mukuru kwa Njenga. Like many informal settlements in Nairobi, Korogocho slum has a high and rapidly rising human population.

Through this project, we aim to improve learning facilities by renovating the existing, old, and unsafe classrooms in selected informal schools in the Korogocho slums. Through this project, we will also renovate & improve the existing and often unsafe latrines. We wish to provide child-friendly latrines to ensure that the students would be safe and able to concentrate in class.

According to a report on child poverty in Kenya, issued by UNICEF & the Government of Kenya, the overall child poverty (prevalence of deprivations) is 45 percent of all children. This translates to 9.5 million children in Kenya, who are severely deprived of at least 3 or more basic needs that are vital for their well-being (UNICEF 2017).

Project Objectives

The general objective of this project is to improve access to quality education by improving learning facilities (classrooms) in informal schools in the Korogocho Slums area.

African Enterprise will be our partner in this effort. They will ensure that the money is well spent and will keep us informed by sending us an “end report” and pictures.

We plan to improve and build 2 classrooms with toilets in Korogocho and Soweto Kayole.
