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.

Kibera is scarcely a beautiful place to visit, but one has to consider that it's a triumph of the human will. There is every type of service and market need to be found there, The inhabitants are incredibly innovative and sell everything

To be honest the rating done its coz one cannot write a review or comment without rating. This is one of the informal settlements in Kenya. Great people despite the living conditions. Not sure its mean to be on trip advisor though!
