Joy, Bonding, Unity and Love in Kibera [PHOTOS]


On our last day at FAFU, I look back in amazement at how fast the week has passed. We have learned so much in the short time we have been in Kibera, and I don’t think any of us will forget our time here.

Each morning, Simeon, the founder and director of the school, shared a word with us, and it was intended to be our motivation for the day. I would now like to share the lessons we have learned during our time at FAFU:

  • Joy
  • Bonding
  • Unity
  • Love
