Kibera

Child in KiberaThis past week I had my 1st opportunity to travel into the Kibera slums, where over a million people live in a little over a square mile of tin-roofed shanties. Ted and I were shooting at a literacy center and interviewing some people who work there. I’ve walked by the entrance to Kibera several times (it’s about a 2 minute walk from our house!) and have had this fear about Kibera since moving here (white people have to take security escorts with them when going inside the slums), but the experience we had there was really great. TheFeet slums may be filled with trash and filth and disease (bars selling homemade brews in re-used Coke bottles, stuff like that!), but we met some people with the joy of Christ in the worst of circumstances. We saw some beautiful children and some of the hardest working people in the world. Click here for some of the photos I took from Kibera if you want to see more.
