9 am - 1 pm - Nairobi City Center - Kibera Slums

This is an escorted tour which starts at 9am from your hotel or abode and goes through the Ngong road past Uchumi Supermarket, turn left just next to the Nakumatt Supermarket. Pass by the DO headquarters through to Bombolulu stage where you start to descend into the three (3) kilometer Main Kibera slum road. Visit the Soweto Village homesteads, and then continue to the Curio (handcrafts) Workshop where you will witness how those living in the Kibera slums are innovative in making ornaments out of animal bones. Continue with visits of the Nursery schools and pass by to see the Water vendor and the Shower shop as you meet other slum dwellers mingling with you as they carry on with their daily chores.

Turn right past the roadside fish mongers into the Bio-gas plant, the only one of its kind in Africa which uses human waste as its raw material in the production of Bio-gas which is used as cooking gas as well as lighting for about 200 households.

Proceed to the Baraka za Ibrahim School or similar. A charitable school, run with the donations from well wishers and caters for lower and upper levels of education starting from Nursery to Secondary level. It has boarding facilities for few Orphaned boys and girls, a small kitchen and a laboratory not to mention a ramshackle over crowded staff room in the center of this tiny overcrowded institution.

Proceed to the other homesteads including those of the tour guides and security team members and witness their life styles in the slums. Pass by a popular pub within the slum for a drink, if you so wish, and pass over the bridge unto the Railway line. You may be lucky to witness the train pass on the railway line amidst the tin roofed houses with human beings and animals (goats, dogs, chickens crossing the railway line at the same time). Cross the railway line into the Center housing the sick and share your moment with these deserving mothers and children of the slum.

Proceed to Tunza Children's' Center which is an Orphaned Children's' Home. In this home you will be able to see the devastation of HIV / Aids on the slum populace and the overcrowding of Orphaned children in a small centre on a 0.01 acre of a plot.
