KENYA // NAIROBI DAY 2

3 To a hot Nairobi we wake up and drive down to Kibera, the biggest slum in the whole of East Africa which inhabits over 1 million people. 1On narrow dirt roads we drove deeper into the slum, tin sheds narrowly lined up to create the maze of poverty. In the outskirts we find the Power Women Group, where I used to volunteer work almost every week from 2005-2007 as well as the orphanage next door. 4 This is Elizabeth and Grace, two of the founders. The Power Women group is a group of twenty HIV-positive women who united in 2004 to help each other battle the stigma and the economic and social discrimination of people with HIV. They run a micro investment association where the women can lend small amounts of money to get by. They make and sell jewellery, they support each other socially and economically when they are ill due to HIV and they inform the surrounding about the disease. They also hold courses in self-defence and help women who get raped. WHICH MEANS THEY ARE KICKASS HEROES AND ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! 2 They told Daniel the story of the group and how they had finally saved up enough money to build a toilet in their headquarters (which is a massive improvement considering there is among 1000 people per toilet in Kibera) They are now opening a hair salon and a nursery, and will hopefully branch out to other towns in Kenya, so that women want have to move to Nairobi to receive support. Go in and like their Facebook page and purchase some of the jewellery they sell to help there wicked fight, like true sisters. 5 Then we said bye to the superstars of this world. And I spoke to Elizabeth and they are really keen on collaborating with other women around the world and also more than open to suggestions/projects. So let me/them know if you have any suggestions and we’ll fucking get stuff going!   Linn
