Kibera Slum Recovery
This program helps alleviate poverty for children and their families in the Kibera Slum through a number of social initiatives.
With a population of half a million people, the Kibera Slum is considered the worst slum in all of Africa. Kibera is where Kenyans go when they have no place else to go, when they have run out of options. People who live in Kibera struggle daily against hunger, unemployment and disease. More than 100, 000 children who live in the Kibera Slum have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. These children have no access to the most basic human rights—food, clean water, health care and education.
Through the Kibera Slum Recovery Program International Needs Canada is working to provide social services such as education, home care and feeding programs, life skills, coping skills and leadership training to help families envision a life beyond the devastating effects of poverty, substance abuse and disease.
