Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya is a melting pot of many cultures and peoples with a dense population and the centre of commerce. The city has widely diverse areas ranging from the affluent retail and luxury estates in Westlands through to the slums in Kabira, home to 1 million people. Refugees are drawn to the city in the hope of a better life and young people struggle to complete education and find work.
We have a Kenyan volunteer who works in Nairobi focused on developing refugee women skills in setting up business. If you would like to hear more, please do get in touch.
