Description of neighborhood
Havillah is located in Kasarani Mwiki about 1.5km from the main road. It is located among other residential buildings, shops and churches. We technically have other people living on either side of our fences. All the schools attended by the children are also conveniently walking distance from the home saving in bus fare costs. The local market is stocked with dry foodstuff and vegetables and again we this too is walking distance. The children around us are friendly and are likely to be found playing with the kids from the home.
