A partnership for Global Oral Health
TePe and Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation support Kenswed Dental Clinic, Nairobi, Kenya. We want to give children and teenagers access to primary dental care and education in preventive dental care.
Together with our partners, we want to offer dental education and dentalcare in less fortunate communities, as well as job opportunities. Oral health is of great importance - it affects people socially and there is an important connection between oral diseases and systemic diseases, that is often overlooked especially in developing countries. By providing access to dentalcare we can contribute to an overall health and a positive development for individuals and society. TePe support the dental clinic with monetary contributions, education materials and oral hygiene products.
The project began in 2020 and the opening ceremony of the dental clinic is expected in February 2022, with the final goal to create a sustainable and self-supporting dental practice for the community.
Kenswed Dental Project is a development project by TePe, Global Relations and Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation. The dental clinic is a part of Kenswed's organization that consists of a high school, boarding school, hospital, and a Vocational Education Center. Zelmerlöw & Björkman Foundation is the main financier of the Kenswed Group, which was founded by Måns Zelmerlöw and Jonas Björkman in 2013.
