Visits to one of the most abhorrent of slum conditions in Africa by Barack Obama and other dignitaries has done little to change the lives of the highly impoverished in Kibera on the outskirts of Nairobi,

Kenya. Voluntary aid worker, Andrew Moulton from Melbourne has seenand worked in Kibera and knows its shame first hand. “When you first walk into Kibera Slum, you ask yourself, ‘How do people live here?’ After a few days experiencing slum life you realise it’s not one of choice but rather one of survival,” he says. Only 20% of Kibera has electricity and water. Sewerage is a hole in the ground.
