I am a 26 year old journalist and photographer in Nairobi. My specialty is social and human interest stories especially slum stories. This does not mean I write anything else. It is just what I love. My stories have been published on a number of Kenyan and some international publications like Sunday Times South Africa, Next Cities, Nation and Nairobi News. I am also a social entrepreneur and part of the founders of Busia Sunset- an organization that aims to fight poverty in Busia by providing workable solutions hence slowing down rural-urban migration.
No one in Kibera can tell the exact date it all started. But everyone remembers seeing foreigners come and go. In the beginning there were a few of them, and many locals believed they were volunteers at the many non-government organisations dotting the area.
