While visiting Kibera Fruitful Centre in Nairobi the children performed to show their skills. This is how they raise funds for school fees. Each time I have visited places and people who are lacking in material resources, but not in skills, I have been impressed by how they manage to organise, arrange and create. And significantly, also the strong sense of community. My impression is that in the communities that I have visited the word “loneliness” is unknown. Because people look after and care for each other. As they say in Africa, “It takes a village to raise a child”, popularised in Western countries by Hillary Rodham Clinton with her book with the same name.
Whether it involves projects, orphanages, or events. One thing is for sure – people are not lacking in creativity. Kibera Fruitful was the very last place I visited before heading home later the same day. Have a look here. 😉
