It has indeed been a long time since we were in touch to report on Map Kibera's initiative around mapping the CDF funds in Nairobi slums. We're so thankful to those of you who contributed! Unfortunately, so far we have only been able to raise a small portion of our necessary budget to realize the project. However, we have used that money to be able to move forward on planning our work to map out the CDF projects in the Kibera slum.
So far we've been able to hold planning sessions with our members, access public records about intended community fund distribution, and do preliminary work finding the locations of the newest projects under that fund. Meanwhile we've been able to continue our programming by reporting on slum neighborhoods online.
In spite of limited resources, our motivated team has been producing quality media on Kibera, like a great video feature by member Joshua Ogure and other members of our Kibera News Network team about pending demolitions along the railway. Click on the link below to watch the video!
You can see from the video that it's all the more critical that our team of slum youth be able to record what's going on in their community and share it with the world. The CDF mapping and reporting project will allow them to make sure that funds directed to their neighborhoods are used in the way they were intended. We continue to work hard to raise the additional funds needed to complete the project and we'll continue to update you as we move forward. Thank you again for your contribution and please consider helping us to spread the word!
