Do you remember the energy transmitted in the videos from all the visits of the Funk Unit to the communities of Kibera in Kenya? One of the latest visits was in 2017

Right from the start in 2009, Nils connected with the community, and continues to this day to support three projects directly improving the futures of young men and women in the slums of Kibera in Nairobi.

The projects have a direct impact – from hygiene awareness campaigns with distribution of sanitary towels to young girls as way to keep them safe: in school and within the community. From keeping food on the table in a childhood development centre caring for and educating 4-8-year-olds and paying school fees for adolescents, to students aiming to sit for university exams in March. From organizing sports activities to keeping adolescents away from risky behavior in a challenging environment. From capacity training in entrepreneurship and agriculture for the community to provide better for their families.

Your support is needed! You can help the community’s youngest with school uniforms, books and school fees – and basic packages including food and hygiene items such as soap and sanitary towels. For less than 15 euro, a girl gets sanitary pads for a whole year – which keeps her in class. For less than 500 euro, one youth can go to college.

Through the links we have with the community, we see the difference we can make together. Play your part in directly contributing to the work of three grassroot projects in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. These projects help children and adolescents not only survive – but thrive!

While the foundation is being set up, you can support through a transfer to the bank account: IBAN nr: SE85 6000 0000 0007 3718 4752

The Nils-Siama Organisation Kibera:

Nils Landgren first started to support Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in 1994, when he took part in a concert in support of the organisation’s work in Rwanda. That first contact eventually grew into a collaboration between his band Funk unit and former MSF General Director Dan Sermand in 2009, called “Funk for Life”. The project brought children musical instruments – for joy and to inspire to new possibilities – aiming at schools in the slums of Nairobi, Khayelitsha in Cape Town and Soweto Johannesburg. Nils has since then maintained a link with the community, and he continues to support young men and women in Nairobi who need financial support for their studies – building a better future for themselves and their families.
