Well, the whole initiative was initiated by former South Sudanese lost boys who live in the United States and Australia.
The whole thing was inspired by Maketh who owned another apartment in the Eastern part of Nakuru.
Maketh saw yet another opportunity convinced his fellow South Sudanese to invest in the brilliant project.
It should be noted the group started by purchasing land 12 km west of Nakuru town just North East of Njoro town in 2016.
The group then contributed money and set up a small village with fancy houses for some of them and others to be rented out.
Maketh and his friends bought the five acres of land which was empty and were determined to set up living spaces for Kenyans.
The former lost boys not only put up 20 beautiful homes in the village but also set up a fence and created jobs for Kenyans in the past four to five years.

By December 28, 2020, about 20 houses out of the 28 were complete and ready for occupancy for the general public.
YEN.com.gh has learnt the grand opening of the village will be graced by the Nakuru County Governor and other notable personalities.
The development of Centerpiece village attracted new development to the area, and soon Nakuru west would be a growing part of town, according to area residents.
As it appears, Centrepiece village will be a gated community with its own shopping centre.
YEN.com.gh understands each house has three bedrooms, three baths rooms, a modern kitchen and a lounge.
The parking lot can comfortably house four cars, and there are trees planted all over the property.
Centerpiece Global Partners are yet to share the prices of the houses.
