Welcome to Kibera Mpira Mtaani (KIMMTA). We are a community based organization located in the Kibera slums, Nairobi, Kenya. The Kibera slums house over 1 million people, mainly young families that have come to Nairobi in search of a better life and work in the city. Many have come from more rural areas where their families have lived for many years. Unfortunately work and facilities are scarce here and most families are reduced to living in corrugated iron and mud-walled huts, with very little money and access to, what many consider basic facilities such as food, sanitation, healthcare and education.
This is the need that KIMMTA comes in to address. Through collaboration and partnerships, we have had different interventions to reach out and empower the Kibera community. We do this by enabling children and young people directly and indirectly.
KIMMTA has over the years grown to be a robust and vital part of daily life for the young children who learn at our center. The growth and development of the organization can be attributed to the support of our friends, partners and the community as a whole.
