We have a life

Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI)

What is life really like in Kibera? This short documentary is based on the experience of our very own Program Coordinator Ibrahim Maina. It tells the story of a Kibera-resident and first-time blogger trying to counter the negative media portrayal of his home. The video was a winner of Rockefeller Foundation’s Storytelling Challenge Award in 2015, the proceedings of which KDI has used to launch a competition in Kibera called #TuJengeKibera (“We Build Kibera”), that aims to foster and support resident-led change in the settlement.
