Start Somewhere is a social business with 9 years experience in development cooperation in one of the largest slums in Africa: Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya. Our vision: a sustainable improvement of living conditions in the worldwide slums. We have developed a flexible, reusable, cost-effective and fireproof construction system out of hollow concrete blocks together with PERI GmbH. Our blocks are being produced in a workshop in Kibera by local workers. As part of a pilot project funded by PERI and DEG we are currently erecting a 2-storey school building there. Start Somewhere creates jobs and improves housing conditions in informal settlements.
