Kibera: A Slice of Heaven
Kibera, Africa’s largest urban slum, has a bad reputation, but there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. At a propitious time in my life, I accepted a position as photographer with a Kenyan-based micro-enterprise and women’s empowerment project. Seeing past the obvious obstacles of this life of poverty and extreme hardship, I found the resilience and hard working ethic of these residents inspiring. I couldn’t help but see the ties that bind us all together: a sense of community, family ties, pride and joy.
