CBRE’s Safer Cities Visit

Last year six EMEA colleagues joined our charity partner, Plan International, on a site visit to CBRE's Safer Cities project in Nairobi, Kenya. They met some of the young people we are aiming to help and saw the shocking reality of living in one of the poorest parts of Kenya.

This is their story.

Over the next two years CBRE's ambition is to contribute €650,000 to our Safer Cities project in Embakasi, as well as providing pro bono support on the ground, such as mentoring and apprenticeship programmes. This target includes at least €200,000 in employee fundraising.
