Dandora  (ongoing project)  The Dandora estate in Nairobi’s Eastlands was established in the 70’s, partly financed by the World Bank. The goal of the Dandora Project was to improve the housing standard - to offer homes to the impoverished Eastland residents.  Yet, today, the heart of the suburb is its dumping site - the largest of its kind in East Africa. And with the waste came the criminality.  The establishment of Dandora lead the way to what today is called “Slum Upgrading” in Kenya. The idea is the same as it was in the 70’s - improving the housing standard by building new flats. But the residents of the informal settlements often feel overrun by the Kenyan government and the NGO’s who are funding the projects. Oftentimes the rent is simply too high - forcing the residents elsewhere.
