If you have to come here to realise what life is like, then do so. Then do something about it. Otherwise, just do something about it.

We spent the morning shopping, and then preparing and baking vegetables and stew at our apartment to take to R.O.C.K (reaching out with care in Kibera). We spent a wonderful afternoon luncheoning with the students there, and learning from them and about them.

Big slum of Nairobi, where lives 1,7 million people. Rubbish everywhere, functioning railway as a main street, shops, hair salons, vegetable street venders. A lot of childrens are around. Pure life of poor Africa. The place to visit to understand how good is our life.

Hi, Kibera tour is very easy to arrange, you can do it from anywhere, but for first-timers,it is strongly advisable to have someone on the ground or an agency if it is a group tour (I can recommend one).
