Beautify Kibera Program
Across the world, advertisements cloud our natural skies and overload the wellbeing of everyone in large part with unwholesome images, false promise, and distasteful visual noise.
In Kibera we seek the opposite.
The artistic talent in Kibera is inspiring. It needs an outlet- which is why we help promote local artists who seek work to feed their families while pursuing their art and personal dreams.
The feedback on our first few billboards has been profoundly influential to us, leading us to start this new program.
We work with talented Kiberan artists like Denis and Frank offering opportunities to use their talent for the benefit of the community: quotations on billboards, as well as meaningful murals and oil paintings.
Daily messages of truth, meaning, and beauty have the opportunity to make indelible mental-emotional impressions on thousands in Kibera. These new billboards have an estimated 1,000 daily readers.
Quotes provide the opportunity to reflect personally on how behavior and tolerance towards others shapes the lives of those living so closely together. They also inspire actions and attitudes that seed more positive interactions and community values.

We learned from our pilot program how we could construct the the lowest cost, most secure, and lasting billboard. Now we invite you and others around the world to give towards others like it. The cost for paint, metal, welding, and the billboard is approximately $350 USD (transport, labor, and concrete included).
The impact of this investment is hard to measure.
One Billboard = 1,000 Estimated Daily Readers
If you, your partner, family, business or company would like to donate towards the construction and choice of quote, please email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your information and donate whatever portion you can towards its creation.
