Africa works

Africa is the second largest continent with 48 countries and remains the poorest and least developed continent in the world. Hunger, poverty, local ethnic and religious conflicts, terrorism, corruption and outbreaks of disease have been a major problem for centuries. However, the continent is making slow progress and improvement in political stability, economic growth and living conditions. Africa is changing and probably has a brighter future.

Kibera is Nairobi’s biggest slum, more than a million people living in poverty. The Kenyan Government does not provide for any essential public services or basic infrastructures, such as sanitation, education, electricity and health-care. Many families are unable to care for their children and a lot of them failing to receive basic education. During the day they live on the street and have to enjoy themselves.
