Building a Safer Kibera

The walls of Silverspring Secondary School are made of iron sheets. During this time, it is very hot. Though the students were tired from the heat, all 50 students showed up for Eneza Club.

Their homework from the previous class was to observe their community and identify ways that they can prevent sexual violence. They had so many great ideas! Their ideas included cleaning bushy areas and putting lights in dark alleys where girls are often raped. They wanted to encourage people to build bathrooms made of doors that can be locked because most of the bathrooms are made of sacks which makes girls vulnerable to sexual assault when using the bathroom. The students mentioned that they have to stop waiting for the government to act, and to take full responsibility in making Kibera safe.

These students are excited to be the solution for building a safer Kibera.
