See Kibera Through His Eyes…

Today I met a man by the name Karanja. He has been living in the slums of kibera since 1971..


He has 7 kids who depend on him daily. One of his sons is in Dagoretti High School which is a bit expensive for him because the school fee is approximately Ksh.82,000 yearly and yet he is jobless.

If he could find someone to offer him a job as a driver he would be very grateful.
