|A typical view in Kibera - the houses are mostly made from old steel sheets (like in this photo) or from their own version of concrete, which is basically dirt mixed with water. Most families all live in one small room.|
A view of Kibera from one of the higher villages (read: relatively better off). Does not at all give a sense for the size, but perhaps for the density. That large cylindrical building is actually a biomass energy facility (from what we're told). Basically they burn feces into energy :)
Me, talking with some kiddies. The little one looks a little... skeptical. But at least the other two are smiling!
|A good view of one of our facilies. Note the trash. This is barely anything compared to some of the other locales.|
|Another facility - Jola. This one is run really well - note the messaging on the tank. Smart! We will be replicating that.|
|Discussing plans at Okere facility. High hopes to get this one running well with hot showers - lots of families right nearby, prime location for great use and improved hygiene.|
|Soap making class with the hygiene club at Undugu school in Silanga. We'll be doing a full hygiene training with these guys next week.|
|More of the soap training.|
We are all really excited for this weekend - tomorrow morning we are headed out to a rural town called Meru. It is the hometown of our project manager here, Anthony, so he will be showing us around. We'll be visiting Meru National Park and Mount Kenya, so stay tuned for (hopefully) awesome wildlife photos next week.
Thanks for reading!
