Kibera can be confronting at first to foreign visitors, but witnessing first hand the positive development work Amani Kibera performs the community leaves one feeling inspired. Amani Kibera are a community-based organisation established by a group of young people who have grown up in the slums. Thus, they know exactly what their community needs, and they are working hard to deliver that. They have set up a public library where students can study in a conducive environment, they run a women's economic empowerment group which makes crafts to help raise money for school fees so the girls can go back to school, and they have a value-based sports program, which aims to promote peace mainly through football tournaments. Visiting the slum with Amani Kibera is not about a voyeuristic slum tour; rather you are visiting to see their projects, but of course as you walk and talk with your hosts you learn about everyday life in the slums as well. They are so welcoming and friendly and it's an inspiring experience to engage with these amazing people and their projects.
