Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) partners with residents of impoverished areas to develop and implement design solutions that improve physical, economic, and social quality of life. We call the low-cost, high impact environments we create Productive Public Spaces.
This Fall we are on the verge of completing three new Productive Public Spaces: KPSP05 and KPSP06 in Kibera, Nairobi and the St. Anthony Trailer Park PPS in the Eastern Coachella Valley, California, USA. We will be conducting our second user testing for our technology project, WATSAN Portal: Kibera, that we have been developing over the last year with partners Spatial Collective and Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company. Finally, we wouldn't be able to get any of this work done with out the help of our many supporters. One of which, The Help Company, donates a portion of their profits to KDI!
