KIBERA TRANSFORMATION AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
This is now a registered Christian Non Governmental Organisation working to uplift the lives of the urban poor. Kibera, the largest slum in Africa with an official population of about 700,000 people (unofficial estimates put it at twice the official figures) live on less than 200 hectares of land.
