KIBERA: Digital community mapping

Kibera is the name of one of Nairobi’s biggest slum areas and until recently was  a blank spot on official Kenyan maps. But over the past few years a group of volunteers have worked with local young people to create their own digital map. The result is the first complete map of Kibera, which it is hoped can form the basis of plans to improve the area and the lives of its residents.
