The Kibera community today played a key role in hosting key former African Presidents from three African countries, who caught the attention of the locals upon their arrivals at KICOSHEP Primary School in Kichinjio village. Today their mission was not just to come and see the slum, but as champions for a HIV–free generation.

KICOSHEP is one of the founders of HIV/AIDS support care in Kibera as it works with persons living with HIV virus and aims to ensure they receive good care despite their status. According to the Executive Director of KICOSHEP, Dr. Anne Owiti Awour, their aim is to help the community fight against stigma and discrimination which is a major contributing factor among people living positively especially in informal settlements.
