About this project
Young people under 35 form over 75% of Kenya's population. A large percentage of which is at the bottom of the pyramid and living in the very under served neighborhoods of Nairobi. Many miss out on opportunities because of lack access, limited amenities and barriers to learn about and use tools for social impact.
Our project design seeks funds to help us create our own space, initiate projects and grow our innovative scope to succeed under the odds while also adding value to the Climate Action mitigation campaigns and environmental conservation methods.
The Slumcode Green Hub - is an easily accessible safe space for passionate, determined creatives and aspiring Entrepreneurs averaging below 35 years.
To create employment for 25 young people over the next 12 months, we welcome friends of goodwill globally to sponsor or donate towards by adopting a space at our hub to grow favorite flowers to be cared for by our Young Green Ambassadors all qualifying for a weekly stipend, while also acquiring vital equipment used to improve services at the hub.
All these in line with the smart and sustainable cities agenda. #U4SSC #ImpactJourney #Listen #Link #Learn #SlumcodeGreen #ClimateAction #CoWorking #SocialCapital
