Women empowerment centre

INTRODUCTION
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
PROJECT JUSTIFICATION
PROJECT CLIENTS
Most women across the globe rely on the informal work sector
for an income.
Empowering women in developing countries is essential to
reduce global poverty.
Empowered women have a transformative role to play in
improving the lives of their children, households and society at
large.
While most governments in Africa acknowledge that
empowering women and girls is a key contributor to economic
development, the transition has been much slower than in
other regions of the world.
KENYA
In Kenya, weak job markets, gender inequality issues, lack of
education, insufficient technology, and limited skill capacity,
altogether undermine women’s abilities to engage in activities
that would promote and sustain their economic well-being.
Involvement in successful income-generating activities should
translate into greater control and empowerment of women in
Kenya.
This project will explore how architecture and design can
support the efforts towards poverty reduction in the developing
world through the empowerment of women.

KAWANGWARE, NAIROBI
Kawangware is an informal settlement in Kenya, 15km west
of the city centre of Nairobi. Kawangware Location of
Dagoretti constituency is one of the low-income residential
areas where about 60 % of the people of Nairobi live.
The population is ethnically diverse. Most people there live
on less than Ksh. 100/= ($1 USD) a day. Among the 75% of
Nairobi's population that live in slum conditions, young
women continue to be the most severely affected by the
poverty, violence and systematic exclusion.
Beyond facing discrimination in health, education, nutrition
and labour, young women are burdened with most family
and household management.
