Help Architecture for Humanity reach our $68,000 goal to complete construction of SIDAREC, a youth technology and resource center in the Mukuru slum settlement of Nairobi. Phase 1 of construction has been completed and Phase 2 is underway. The finishing funds will open the building before the year’s end.
The center will give residents Internet access, computer and technology training, health clinic services, early childhood development programs, and a community theater. A radio station and recording studio will top out the construction project, beaming SIDAREC’s radio station 99.9 Ghetto FM to more than 650,000 local residents and countless listeners around the world.
