Peace transcribed by HotSun Foundation The Vijana Amani Pamoja (VAP) has helped a great deal here in Kibera. Since its foundation many youths have been involved in many useful works in the slums. Before that there was many cases of insecurity in the slums. One would not be seen walking late at night since he was bound to be attacked by things. Many lives was lost as many children became orphaned. Many school dropout would be involved in smoking cigarettes and chewing of miraa. The school could register a few people since many opted to live school.Kevin, almost of age 21, is a charcoal seller near a railway line passing in the middle of Kibera is a changed man. He thanks God after escaping from policemen who were armed ready to kill him. About 2 years ago he was among a gang of thieves who terrorized the local community. They would gather at a weird house to share what they have stolen the previous night. His friends who also lives in the same area with him were the ones who introduced him in that gang.The neighbours alerted the police and later the police killed some of them. That was the day he would never forget in his life.He now has a wife and two kids whom he ensures they are well fed and go to school.

The Unmamde Trust transcribed by HotSun Foundation The umande Trust is a Bro Centre which the government decided to construct for the people of Kibera to use. The sanitation for the people of Kibera was very poor as they were used to using the flying toilets which was very unhygienic. The flying toilets could cause the spread of diseases e.g. cholera, typhoid and also malaria. The Bio centres are on latrines which if one wishes to enter he/she is supposed to pay Kshs: 2. It also has a shower room which one is supposed to pay Kshs: 3/= and you are provided with everything. I would ask the leaders and any other organization to help and create or construct more Bio centres because each and everyday the demand always increase. To my fellow people is that we should maintaining those bio centres clean for our own benefit let us work together as many hands are better than one and also cleanliness is next to Godliness.THE KERI COMPUTER TRAINING PROJECTThe Keri computer training project is situated in Madaraka residence near Strathmore university in Nairobi West. They usually offer a one month computer training for a sum of Kshs: 1100. The learning is only for girls as they have always been given a priority. The Keri people believed the saying that usually goes if you educate a girl you educate the society. They believed that girls if educated can do marvelous in the society. The era of women discrimination is over, so women must be given a chance and opportunity to learn as men usually do. I would like to urge the community and the leaders to give the women a chance and to create more opportunities for their learning. They should learn and learn and be great people in the society. Many organizations should emulate the example of Keri so that they can create more opportunites for the girl child. Women must be educated and become something in the society. Through the effort of Keri many girls have learnt computer which is one of the most expensive to pay. I would like to thank Keri for the effort that they put in to educate girls. To my fellow girls I would like to tell them that every opportunity that come your way you must grab it because opportunity usually comes once and never come back. And also never procrastinate what you can do today. Be focused, hardworking and committed. Umande Trust

Tunza Clinic transcribed by HotSun Foundation Malnutritions and children diseases have been very common among the slum children and this has not been prevented in an cosyway. Pregnant mothers have also had to walk for many kilometers before they can reach a formal medical institution that can offer them professional services.Tunza clinics have therefore come in very handy to help out solve some of these problems that have lived with us for very many years. Harried has been a nurse here for four months. She believes that the constant inflow in the number of patients who keep on coming to the clinic can be attributed to the convenience of their services and the point of location too.Their maternity department operates for twenty four hours. This is because there are emergency cases that could occur within the night that need to be attended to.
