Dandora

Dandora is an eastern suburb in Nairobi, Kenya. It is part of the Embakasi division. Surrounding neighbourhoods called estates include Kariobangi, Baba Dogo, Gitare Mariogo and Korogocho. Dandora was established in 1977, with partial financing by the World Bank in order to offer a higher standard of housing.[1] However, the estate has turned into a high-density slum with high unemployment.

Nairobi's principal dumping site is situated in Dandora. The Dandora Oxygenation Ponds, a prominent feature on satellite imagery of the area, is Nairobi's main sewage treatment works, and discharges processed water into the Nairobi River.[2]
