Typical investments in this region

 Access Afya

“Integrated community healthcare for slums”

Access Afya runs a chain of micro-clinics in Nairobi’s slums. 


See details...

Around 60% of urban Kenyans live in slums. Here, healthcare options are inconvenient, unreliable, with appealing options as unaffordable. Residents in the slums choose between crowded, under-resourced facilities and informal chemists, who sell pills but not healthcare. The drugs that residents purchase from these unregulated, under-qualified chemists often are counterfeit or expired. 

We are customizing a solution that speaks directly to this market. By setting up micro-clinics directly into slums between fruit sellers and homes, we make care convenient and through our training and customer care program, we make it a lot more friendly and comfortable.

We are raising funds to expand our work through additional field-based sites including employer health points for informal workers and chronic care management groups. We are also raising money to support our third site.


 African Prisons Project

See details...

For over a decade, AFRICAN PRISONS PROJECT has worked to bring dignity and hope to men, women and children in prison in Africa through healthcare, education, access to justice and community reintegration. APP’s vision is that time spent in prison is a time of positive transformation where inmates gain the skills, motivation and support needed to live with dignity and contribute positively to society on release. APP is working to establish a new, sustainable model for imprisonment in Africa, based on rehabilitation and a respect for human rights. To achieve this, its approach is based on a partnership with prison services, the police, the judiciary, lawyers, NGOs, businesses, universities, healthcare providers and prison staff and prisoners themselves.
