Dandora urban rejuvenation, Kenya

0.00

In 2015 Rodeo were asked by IFHP - as a part of their Making Cities Together program - to partake in a project concerning the rejuvenation of Dandora in Nairobi, Kenya. Originally a social housing estate built by UN Habitat in the 1970s, the area has since become one of the largest popular settlements in Nairobi, with large socio-economic, infrastructural, and safety related challenges. These challenges are compounded by the estate's proximity to the Dandora landfill - where waste from all over Nairobi is dumped. Combined with sub standard housing, insalubrious and unsafe public areas, the environmental and health hazards that the landfill pose has made Dandora one of the worst housing areas in Nairobi. 

Together with Mustard Seed, a local CBO that have executed several successful cleanup projects in public spaces in Dandora, a strategy was created for bringing the cleanup efforts to scale, as an urban rejuvenation scheme for the entire estate.
