Youths upgrade Kibera slum infrastructure as part of UN-HABITAT initiative
UN-HABITAT has announced a fresh resolve to tackle deteriorating living conditions in cities by harnessing the energy of the youth, Abubakar Ibrahim reported in a March 31 article on AllAfrica.com.
The youths’ skills were put to use at the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. With $100,000 in funding from UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, they upgraded infrastructure in the slum using affordable materials. The initiative is expected to be implemented around the world.
