Nov 20, 2017, 09:05 PM

This week on The Debrief, Al Jazeera’s Hassan Ghani goes to Kibera to find stories that take us beyond the miserable stats and hardship of life in poverty - a young man bringing toilets to the slum, a mother going to school to ensure a better life for her kids, and a radio DJ who gives a voice to Kibera’s voiceless.

While you’re listening, check out this satellite view of Kibera to see how densely populated it is. https://goo.gl/maps/7qW7XCYmMmG2
