Our community is diverse, so we would like to encourage people to try something new. A variety of young artists and DJ’s will keep everyone entertained throughout, Kwani Trust will also organise a Spoken Word session, so if you want to be discovered start preparing now!

 

The challenge will be how to leave when you are having so much fun!

Kilimani is located in the southern part of Westlands constituency. It stretches from Upperhill in the south to bordering Kawangware and Lavington in the north, and from Kileleshwa in the East to Ngong Road in the West. Many children from Kibera and Kawangware school in Kilimani, and many workers come from these adjoining neighborhoods.

 

Name the nationality, and we will find someone in Kilimani.

With a population of 43,000, it is a bustling neighborhood filled with creative energy. At the centre of Savannah Valley it hosts all Kenyan communities as well as Nigerians, Ghanaians, Sudanese, South Sudanese, Somalis, Ethiopians, Chinese, Japanese, other African nationalities, Europeans, Americans, and Latinos. This diversity is its strength and creates a community, which is hungry for innovation.
