The Supply activates urban slum youth to create the cities of tomorrow through service learning.
We are intentional with the word “activate” because we believe that we are merely unlocking the potential that already exists in our students.
Cities of Tomorrow
We believe that eradication and demolition are not the solution. Instead, in-situ, bottom up, inclusive solutions like ours will make slums the cities of tomorrow.
Service learning is at the crux of our work and theory of change. Though a new concept for the context we work with, we believe it’s a game changer.
Why it Matters
Slums are the Cities of Tomorrow
70% of Nairobi's urban population live in slums. By 2050, nearly 90% of the world's urban population will live in slums. The urgency of this issue? The numbers speak for themselves.
Slums, left untouched, can become a major threat to global security and stability. Environmental and health hazards and global terrorism activity is quickly emerging from slums.
All Lives Matter
Urban slums and the human rights violations are an issue that often goes ignored by mass media and the public. The consensus is that World Cup stadiums matter more than the lives of slum dwellers.
Our core values drive our beliefs, attitudes, and everyday decisions.
