An informal settlement in Nairobi’s Eastlands, Dandora is surrounded by many of Nairobi’s other informal settlements.  The neighborhood is divided into five sections – Phase 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.  The area is home to a large proportion of unemployed residents, and crime, both petty and organized, continues to cause problems in the community.  Dandora is also home to Nairobi’s major solid waste dump and sewage treatment plant.

Dandora has many groups that have formed and work to address Dandora’s many challenges. SNA-K partners with:
