1. Human Needs Project builds infrastructure for opportunity. In slums we provide basic services (clean water, toilets, showers, laundry) and empowerment services (business skills training, microcredit, a wifi, health kiosk, and a green marketplace). Our Town Centers are self-sustaining social enterprises, earning income for operations and maintenance while encouraging economic growth. HNP’s pilot project is in the Kibera slum of Nairobi, Kenya. Once proof of concept is in and funding in place, HNP plans to scales up its operations and replicate Town Centers around the world.
