Pro­fes­sor Kam­men, serves as the CTO of the Human Needs Project, high­lighted how the Kib­era Town Cen­ter Project pro­vides basic ser­vices (water, toi­lets, show­ers, laun­dry) and empow­er­ment ser­vices (busi­ness skills train­ing, micro-​​credit, WiFi cafe, health kiosk, green mar­ket­place) to over 800 peo­ple per day. These inte­grated ser­vices pro­vide a holis­tic solu­tion to the chal­lenges of liv­ing in a slum. Together, they can help peo­ple with a road map to cre­at­ing a bet­ter life.

Actress and Human Needs Project Founder and Pres­i­dent Con­nie Nielsen said, “Our vision is to develop a net­work of com­mu­nity empow­er­ment cen­ters them­selves pow­ered by clean energy, which is the most reli­able form of power”
