Nurse Job in Kibera, Nairobi - Shining Hope for Communities


Open Position:Nurse
 
Location: Kibera, Nairobi
      
About the Organization:
  
Shining Hope for Communities has developed an innovative, community-driven model to combat inter-generational cycles of poverty and gender inequality in Nairobi’s Kibera slum. 

We link free schools for girls to accessible social services for all. 

In August 2009, we founded The Kibera School for Girls, the first entirely free school for girls in Kibera. 

The second step of our model provides the community-at-large with tangible benefits through a community center adjacent to the school. 

The unique services we offer include sanitary eco-toilets, a library and cyber café, gardens and food security, gender violence support, microenterprise for HIV positive women, a youth center, access to water, business and literacy training, and hundreds of jobs. 

We also operate the Johanna Justin-Jinich Community Clinic, which specializes in primary care and maternal health. 

By investing in health and economic success through a school for girls, we demonstrate that benefitting women benefits the whole community, cultivating a community ethos that makes women respected members of society.
