"Slum Area Development"

While living in Kenya, I witnessed many slum estates where people live in "mabati houses" made of corrugated metal sheeting, with poor sanitation, open sewers run between the houses where children play and people walk. When we asked the residents what they needed, most said they wanted education, jobs and sanitation.

It was decided to set up a local charity in the form of a "Foundation" but unfortunately due to corruption on behalf of the authorities and the complicated administrative decision making processes, the Foundation never became operational, but we did offer free courses (see: courses on menu bar) and a video was made to raise awareness.
