Life in Gioto Dump Site

Volunteer providing shoes for children of Gioto

This report features the Gioto dump. Situated about two kilometers from the city center, the Gioto dump, in juxtapostion to its ugliness, has a beautiful view of Lake Nakuru. Though Expanding Opportunities does not have a specific project for the Gioto Dump Site, we collaborate with and purchase artwork through those organizations who do. One of Expanding Opportunities' volunteers, brought over 50 pairs of shoes to the dump site for distribution.  Some of the street children in Nakuru make the dump their home.  It is a harsh reality for children growing up in such an environment.

As pictures speak louder than words, please watch the slide show.
