Map of EMPOWERNMENT Jacob was a white man who came to kenya for some job attachment and one day he was very sad by hte way the slum dwellers lived and decided to make a positive change. He started by shifting from his luxurious house in runda to come and live in the slum at first life was hard for him but soon he got acquinted to slum life. He managed to open a printing press station for publishing magazines about issues affecting the slums it proved to be a very fundamental tool in fighting poverty because people issues were aired and problems were solved.
