Slums Information Development and Resource Centres (SIDAREC) is a youth development project operating in the slums of Nairobi.
Welcome to our official website. Slums Information Development and Resource Centres (SIDAREC) is a youth development project operating in the slums of Nairobi. The organization was established in 1996 as a community based youth group with an aim of tapping and consolidating skills and talents existing among the youth in the community for the common benefit of the slum dwellers.
This project was in line with the acceptable knowledge, that despite all the problems affecting slum dwellers, from a different perspective, a lot of untapped resources exists in the communities; resources that if acknowledged, harnessed and utilized would be useful in bringing the much needed positive development change under the concept that 'community problems need community solutions.
SIDAREC believes that lack of basic education is contributing factor that leads to poverty. Early Childhood Development and Education (ECDE) play a very important role in developing a child's intellect and growth.
