Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

On reading the Imagine 7 challenge, the first thought that came to my mind was Kibera – an urban slum housing in Nairobi, Kenya. The word Kibera is commonly thought to be the Nubian term for Forest or Jungle. Encompassing an area of 2.5km2 (a little bit smaller than Central Park in New York), Kibera’s population is estimated at between 600,000 and 1.5 million inhabitants, depending on the season.

Residents of Kibera have little or no access to clean water, sanitation, healthcare, electricity, or schools. The homes are more often than not built on top of garbage and often collapse due to regular flooding caused by poor drainage. As you can see from the map below, Kibera is right behind my office (the red triangle). Here is a grim picture depicting what you would see were you to venture into the slum. I have put the icons at the bottom of the page instead of squeezing the all within the Kibera Slum space on the map.
