Introduction
About 71 percent of Kenya’s urban population lives in overcrowded slums on the periphery of major cities. These slum dwellers face poor and unhygienic living conditions and are frequently threatened with forced eviction. Jane Weru is working to organize these slum dwellers and empower them with the technical and financial resources needed to prevent eviction and improve their living conditions.
