The Kiambiu slum is located in the Eastern part of Nairobi and neighbors the Kariobangi community. There is an estimated population of 60,000 residents and a majority of the households lack access to clean water and sanitation services. There are very few employment opportunities around Kiambiu and there is a high rate of HIV in this community, particularly among young women.
The CARE for AIDS center in Kiambiu will operate in partnership with A.I.C. (African Inland Church) Kiambiu. Center counselors Jacob and Ann (pictured below) are currently in training and will begin client recruitment in September.
Ann, Health Counselor
Jacob, Spiritual Counselor
