The Human Needs Project creates better living conditions in Nairobi slum

When a charity concert hosted by Connie Nielsen needed a new sound system, we took care of the transport to Kenya.

Kibera, Nairobi,Kenya

Kibera is the largest slum area not only in Nairobi, Kenya but in all of Africa. Here the Human Needs Project (HNP) helped establish the Kibera Town Centre which opened on 24 July 2014.  

The Kibera Town Centre

The Town Centre has its own source of water and power and a recycle/re-use system for its wastewater. It provides access to clean drinking water, toilets, showers, washing machines and dryers, a health kiosk and much more including wi-fi/internet access.

Our contribution

We arranged handling and transport of a complete sound system from pick up in Denmark to delivery at the Kibera Town Centre. And we managed to arrange delivery just in time for a recent charity concert hosted by HNP co-founder Connie Nielsen. The sound system was donated by AV-HUSET in Denmark.

The Human Needs Project

It began with a determination to provide clean water to the inhabitants of Kibera. As a result and after filming "Lost in Africa" in Kibera in 2010 Danish actress Connie Nielsen, probably best known for her role in Gladiator, co-founded the Human Needs Project together with David Warner, the CEO of a California, USA based construction company.  

The objective is to provide clean drinking water, sanitation and energy and, subsequently, social and financial empowerment services.
