 Detailed Itinerary:

 Day 1: Kibera Slums Tour

 The tour starts at 8am from Methodist Guest House in Nairobi and goes through the Ngong road past Uchumi Supermarket, turn left just next to the Nakumatt Supermarket. Pass by the DO headquarters through to Bombolulu stage where you start to descend into the three (3) kilometer Main Kibera slum road. Visit the Soweto Village homesteads, and then continue to the Curio (handcrafts) Workshop where you will witness how those living in the Kibera slums are innovative in making ornaments out of animal bones. Continue with visits of the Nursery schools and pass by to see the Water vender and the Shower shop as you meet other slum dwellers mingling with you as they carry on with their daily chores.

Turn right past the roadside fish mongers into the Biogas plant, the only one of its kind in Africa which will use human waste as its raw material in the production of Biogas which will be used as cooking gas as well as lighting about 200 households once it is accomplished and commissioned.

 Proceed to the Baraka Za Ibrahim School which is a charitable school, run with the donations from well wishers and caters for lower and upper levels of education starting from Nursery to Secondary level. It has boarding facilities for few Orphaned boys and girls, a small kitchen and a laboratory not to mention a ramshackle over crowded staff room in the centre of this tiny overcrowded institution.

 Visit Slum Dwellers Proceed to the other homesteads including those of the tour guides and security team members and witness their life styles in the slums. Pass by a popular pub within the slum for a drink, if you so wish, and pass over the bridge unto the Railway line. You may be lucky to witness the train pass on the railway line amidst the tin roofed houses with human beings and animals (goats, dogs, chickens crossing the railway line at the same time). Cross the railway line into the Centre housing the sick and share your moment with these deserving mothers and children of the slum.

 Proceed to Tunza Children's' Centre which is an Orphaned Children's' Home. In this home you will be able to see the devastation of HIV / Aids on the slum populace and the overcrowding of Orphaned children in a small centre on a 0.01 acre of a plot. Meet Mama Tunza - Timina Khasiala who runs the centre from well wishers' donations.

Your will also be taken to Kibera school for girls – a shinning hope for community. The school is housed in an eco-friendly building in the heart of Kibera. Community members helped build the school, which includes eight classrooms, a large library, and a multipurpose room. The school also provides students with after-school programs and psychosocial support to prevent further rape and abuse and address trauma.
