Korogocho and Kibera are informal settlements in Nairobi that have been selected for inclusion within the PRUV Project.
With a population of about 250,000 (Census 2009), Kibera is the biggest slum in Africa and one of the largest in the world. Kibera which measures approximately 225 hectares is situated on the outskirts of Nairobi with a resultant density of 2,222 people per hectare of which approximately 95 percent of households live below the poverty line. The original settlers were the Nubian people from the Kenyan/Sudanese border who now occupy about 15% of Kibera, are mostly Muslim and are also mostly house owners.
Kawangware is located about 15 km west of the city centre. It has seen frequent protests and election-related violence in recent months.
