Kibera has been known to be the largest slum in the world and the most worst place ever this is because it is known by many people that in kibera there are latrines in the place this has also contributed to hatred between the children who are leaving in kibera and the ones who come from other places and due to this promblem many puplis or students have been affected physical and mentally they have been asking themselves many question example why do we live in kibera? Why was i born in kibera? Why do we live in kibera? Why do other pupils hate us it is because of lack of latrines or because the name of the slum kibera but though these promblem i went to thank the Amref for there support which is an non-government organization which started building latrines in kibera, pitlatrines in school both in private and government schools and also educating the society on low to take care of the environment, the importance of staying in a clean environment to reduce the issue of hatred and lack of latrines and the toilet tunks to the organization for there help work to see people in kibera leaving in a clean environment.
