As in all big cities around the world, it is critical to see and understand as many sides as possible--not just the "tourist traps" and wealthy enclaves. Kibera is one of many communities we call slums but that people like my young guides also call home. Musa and Jack showed me the good, the bad and the ugly--with heart and enthusiasm. And I came away richer for it!

Description

We will pick our guest at a common designated meeting point indicated that is Yaya Centre Shopping mall. We shall use a "Matatu" which is our common means of transport; a short ride into the starting point. after a briefing from this point the walk will take off through the villages in Kibera.

We will visit social sites, the famous Undugu Playground and the Nairobi Dam. We will also visit Seed School Kibera which is a school taking care of the general academic needs of the children in Kibera. The walk will also take the guest through other social impact areas where youths and transformed community members creatively strive at being resilient by self employing themselves.
These they do through bone carvings and bead works to make jewelries to make ends meet due to rife unemployment in Kibera slum.

We will have three stopping points where guests can take snapshots; of course guests can still take photos of the streets a long the way. We will also have a stopping point within a local Kiosk where we will be able to take refreshments or water.
