Inside Africa’s largest Slums Kibera, lives a population of about one million Kenyan Citizens. Most of the people living here consists of different groups of all the 42 tribes that all depends on this home as a hideout to poverty and be able to find a cheap and sustainable life.
The rising population inside this home has led to a reduced rate of employment and job opportunities to both adults and young youths, resulting into high rate of crime and teenage pregnancies, school dropouts and lack of enough health facilities around the community.
The little mini businesses practiced by the people living around this congested community can only provide an amount of three dollars a day which is always never enough to the families needs. Inside one room in Kibera Slums lives a family of about two to six family members’ which includes mother father and children. Since not every youth is able to get a job and pay a house rent, many are forced to share the same roofs with their families.
Around the Slums, people mostly believe in togetherness and happiness despite all the challenges. People come together through business, different religious practices within the community, Sports and most importantly through languages.
