Visiting the shanty settlements outside Nakuru, Kenya

Many people and families remain internally displaced since the 2007 election conflict. For those children more integrated in the city and attending school, I am confident that staff trying and a school-based intervention such as planned by Elijah could work.

Here the picture was grim because of the extreme poverty and lack of access to any supports. Young children were roaming aimlessly next to the highway and teenagers stood on the same point staring blankly, with nothing to hope for. You can see a burnt building from the period of violence. The new charity should start with more basic input. Plenty to think about tomorrow after the launch.
