Kibera Slum: Kibera started as a settlement in the forests at the outskirts of Nairobi, when Nubian soldiers returning from service with the King's African Rifles were allocated plots of land there in return for their efforts in 1904.
Today most of Kibera slum residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day. There are few schools, but most people cannot afford them. Clean water is rare and diseases caused by poor hygiene are not. A great majority living in the slum lack access to basic services, including electricity, running water, and medical care.
