Toy Truck

The Mwelu Foundation is a youth project based in the Mathare Valley slum in Nairobi, Kenya.

We have set up a library and are taking positive steps to improve our livelihoods by building essential life skills. Through our initiatives we also hope that we can begin to displace the myth that slums like Mathare are dead-end places with no potential or home-grown talent.
