Voice of Kibera - a novel innovation

No comments :

In Sub- Saharan Africa, Kibera in Nairobi is considered to be the largest slum, reports electronic media. About one million people inhabit the area.

People living in this area have developed many farming innovations but limited communication does not allow the innovations to reach up to grass root level. However, the condition is being changed now by the project Voice of Kibera.

People under the Kibera project are reported to send innovations through SMS that are later posted on the website of the project. Though the project is not specifically targeted to agriculture only, the website can serve medium of communicating innovative ideas to residents and to organise workshops and orientation programmes.

It has also been reported that voice of Kibera has become powerful enough to influence social, political and economic areas.

Key Words : project, Kibera, Africa
