Kwangu-Kwako is a social enterprise that builds safer, healthier homes for families in informal settlements in Nairobi, Kenya. The houses are built from reinforced precast concrete panels made by local artisans within the target community, providing sustainable livelihoods to those most in need.
Kwangu-Kwako is a combination two swahili words; ‘Kwangu’ meaning ‘My Place’, ‘Kwako’ meaning ‘Your Place’; ‘Kwangu-Kwako’ ‘My Place, Your Place’.
