These kids are from the Kibera slum. Mathia's dream is to one day, build a library in every school in Kibera. Most schools in Kibera who do not have enough books.
Joseph. 22 years, Kibera Clean Up.
One of the challenges Kibera slum face is poor drainage, which majorly contributed by people throwing trash everywhere. What is this problem could be solved and at the same time create employment for jobless youth. This is the idea the Joseph came up with. He has so far cleaned an area of about 5km. 5 youth have benefitted from his ideas in terms of job creation.
