About Kibera

Kibera is one of the largest slums on the African continent. Located inside the capital city of Nairobi, Kibera has a population of close to 1 million people in less than a square mile. Basic life necessities like clean water, consistent food on the table, plumbing, and electricity are scarce in Kibera. Because of this, disease and sickness are a constant struggle for the people of Kibera. Life expectancy in the slum is 30 years old. Most children in the slum either have one or no parents. Kids growing up in Kibera have the odds stacked against them. The vast majority are unable to finish high school, thus unable to gain employment, which then leads to a life in the slum and the same outcome for their future children.
