4:19 mins - Share The World's Resources, January 2010

This film was made to coincide with the launch of ‘Megaslumming’, the new book by Share The World’s Resources that was launched in Kenya in January 2010. The film vividly portrays some of the realities of poverty for the residents of Kibera – Kenya’s most notorious shantytown, and focuses on Djemba the street boy who is the central character in the book.

The book ‘Megaslumming’ sets out to unravel how an informal settlement such as Kibera came to exist, what economic forces shape the reality of life for slum-dwellers in Africa, and what it really means to live in extreme poverty. Written as a lucid introduction to global justice issues, the book ultimately raises serious questions about the current direction of world development.
