The Global Child – The Slums of Kibera: A Preventative Approach to a HIV/AIDS Crisis

How would you initiate creative spaces of support and education for children living in a slum? Here is the problem, Kibera is the largest slum in Africa and is one of the biggest in the world.
The Slums of Kibera, in Kenya houses almost 1 Million people. In Kibera there are no governmental medical facilities or HIV/AIDS Clinics. Some charitable organizations have stepped in to fill the gap and they do praiseworthy work, offering a range of services but they are challenged by the conditions of the slums’. Our guest’s intention is to succeed and improve the health of the youth in Kibera. Sani Ministries is partnering with my nongovernmental organization To Love Children Educational Foundation International’s program in implement Healthy and Smart a HIV/AIDS Preventative Curriculum Approach for Youth.
Pastor George Morumbwa is a health care provider, community mobilizer, and a preacher who understands firsthand the urgency to educate youth on HIV/AIDS preventative methods in order to effect positive social change. Pastor George is working with his volunteers in Nairobi, Kenya to educate youth concerning the HIV/AIDS risk, and most importantly, how to prevent infection.
