Mathare Township outside Nairobi, Kenya is illegally build on government land with no acces to public water, sanitation and electricity. Open sewers run in the streets. Litter and plastic is everywhere. A group of Young Red Cross volunteers have taken an initiative to clean up, but the job is overwhelming. Private people make long pipelines from the main water supply far away and make a living out of selling drinking water. The same goes for electricity with dangerous wirering. People live in houses made of wood and metal plates using small stowes for cooking. The density of people and houses is high in Mathare and fires are frequent and spread fast. A girl is passing the place where several houses burnt and people died in he fire. On the ground a page from a school notebook is talking about good citizenship, participation in community development, participation in elections and involvement in government.
