Community Service at Kibera

THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELPMENT GOALS (SDGs).

Approved in the UN General Assembly in New York in 2015, the SDGs are 17 benchmarks used to measure progress achieved worldwide. As Heels and Valise Tours, we decided to play our part in propelling our country towards achieving these goals by taking up three goals and working on them. They are.

1. No Poverty
2. No Hunger
3. Responsible consumption.
This we do through various engagements as opportunity arises.
COMMUNITY SERVICE AT KIBERA
You can put a smile on someone’s face.
The team

Community service was one of the courses that one had to undertake during my undergraduate program. This is still a requirement for many students and finding a place to carry out community service can be a headache. Student or not, community service is one activity that one can engage in at any age or stage in life. There is always someone who needs a hands, and there is always someone who can give a hand.

Join a team of energetic young people at Kibera Slums as they try their best to positively change the present and future of their community. Kibera Joy Initiative, a community youth organisation, has a new program dubbed Slum Children Initiative aimed at sharing food with slum children every Saturday as well as coming up with a community library.

The team has also bee very active in providing food and civic education on sanitary measures to its residents while partnering with various stake holders.
